Guy Kennaway

Guy Kennaway is a writer of fiction and memoir. He is best known for his novels ONE PEOPLE, about village life in Jamaica, BIRD BRAIN, about a bunch of optimistic pheasants, and for his memoir TIME TO GO about killing his mother (with her permission.). His most recent novel, THE ACCIDENTAL COLLECTOR, won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction in 2021. His most recent memoir is FOOT NOTES, a broad comedy about race and nationality which he wrote with his relative Hussein Sharif. ‘In all my writing my aim is to delight and amuse,’ Kennaway has said. ‘Hopefully I make people laugh out loud. Laughter is our most effective weapon in the battle against the difficulties and struggles of life. If I can transport my reader to a happy, joyful world, my mission is successful.’ ‘I always think of my reader as wise, worldy and equipped with a sharp sense of humour. If you are not like this, my books are probably annoying and hopefully offensive.’
