Andrew O’hagan

ANDREW O’HAGAN, who was born in Glasgow, was first recognised as a literary talent in 1995 when he published his first book, The Missing, to considerable critical acclaim and the book was shortlisted for three literary awards. O’Hagan’s debut novel Our Fathers (1999) was also nominated several awards, including the Booker Prize, the Whitbread First Novel Award, and the IMPAC Literary Award. To affirm this success, Granta selected O’Hagan’s work for inclusion in their 2003 list of the top 20 young British novelists. He is also a contributing editor to both the London Review of Books and Granta, and writes occasional articles for the mainstream press, including a regular film column for Esquire.
