Joe Dunthorne’s first novel, Submarine, was translated into sixteen languages and adapted for film by Richard Ayoade. His second, Wild Abandon, won the 2012 Encore Award. The Adulterants, published earlier this year, was hailed by The Guardian as ‘brilliantly knowing’, and by the New Statesman as ‘a wickedly funny millennial Bildungsroman’. Joe teaches on the MA in Prose Fiction at UEA.
Luke Kennard’s fifth and latest poetry collection, Cain, was shortlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize in 2017. His first novel, The Transition, was published by 4th Estate in 2017 and longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize. He lectures at the University of Birmingham.
Joe Dunthorne's The Adulterants and Luke Kennard's The Transition are both biting satires following the logical absurdities of life in the city for Generation Rent.
