Kerry Hudson’s first novel, Tony Hogan Bought Me an Ice-cream Float Before He Stole My Ma, published in 2012, was the winner of the Scottish First Book Award and shortlisted for multiple awards including The Guardian First Book Award and the Polari First Book Award.
Hudson’s second novel, Thirst, won France’s most prestigious award for foreign fiction, the Prix Femina Étranger.
Her latest, non-fiction book, Lowborn, and a series of columns for The Pool take her back to the towns of her childhood as she investigates her own past and what it means to be poor in Britain today.
Hudson founded The Breakthrough Festival and has written for publications including Grazia, The Guardian and The Metro.
