Christopher Priest

Christopher Priest (born July 14, 1943 in Cheadle, near Stockport, Greater Manchester) is an English novelist, whose notable works include Fugue for a Darkening Island (US title Darkening Island), Inverted World, The Affirmation, The Glamour, The Prestige and The Separation.

In 1983, Priest was one of the twenty Granta Best of Young British Novelists. He is married to the writer Leigh Kennedy and lives in Hastings with their twin children. He was previously married to the writer Lisa Tuttle.

Many of his works could be classified as science fiction. Priest’s work often features unreliable narrators, and thereby raises questions about narrative, truth, and the nature of memory and reality.
