Paul Torday burst on to the literary scene in 2007 with his first novel, SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN, an immediate international bestseller that has been translated into 28 languages and has been made into a film starring Ewan McGregor, Kristin Scott Thomas and Emily Blunt. His subsequent novels, THE IRRESISTIBLE INHERITANCE OF WILBERFORCE, THE GIRL ON THE LANDING, THE HOPELESS LIFE OF CHARLIE SUMMERS, MORE THAN YOU CAN SAY, THE LEGACY OF HARTLEPOOL HALL and LIGHT SHINING IN THE FOREST, were all published to great critical acclaim. He was married with two sons by a previous marriage, had two stepsons, and lived close to the River North Tyne. He died at home in December 2013.Review :
"Wilberforce...is good fictional company and the narrative voice Torday gives him...provides an astringently comic note" SUNDAY TIMES "This compulsive study of addiction proves Torday's mastery of the dark, as well as the light, realms of fiction" TIMES "a human story of real poignancy" SUNDAY TELEGRAPH "Torday, as he demonstrated in his debut novel Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, is an extravagantly gifted writer" MAIL ON SUNDAY "it becomes darker and more poignant with each eagerly turned page" BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH "Unusual and intriguing, this 'Novel in Four Vintages' is a story of passion and addiction, identity and the desire to belong" GOOD BOOK GUIDE
