Novelist, short story writer and poet, Neil Randall was born in Norfolk, England in 1975. His literary life, however, began during a trip to St. Petersburg in the mid-nineties. The richness of this experience aroused a great passion for Russian literature, history and culture, providing the inspiration for his historical novels, ‘The Holy Drinker’ and ‘The Butterfly and the Wheel’ (both Knox Robinson Publishing, 2014)
While influenced by classic authors such as Gogol, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky and Chekhov, Randall is also a big admirer of contemporary writers such as Andrey Kurkov and Olga Grushin, especially Death and the Penguin and The Dream Life of Sukhanov.
His work, including ‘A Quiet Place to Die’ and ‘Tales of Ordinary Sadness’, has been published in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia.
