Alan Glynn was born in 1960. He studied English literature at Trinity College, Dublin. He has worked in magazine publishing in the USA and as an EFL teacher in Verona. He is married and lives in Dublin. This is his first novel.
'Alan Glynn's THE DARK FIELDS is that rare thing - a first novel of such great stylistic assurance and narrative energy that you immediately realize you're in the hands of a born storyteller. More tellingly, this dark, corrosive story of designer pharmaceuticals and high finance is a trenchant morality tale for our manic, avaricious times. This is a wild, compulsive ride into the greedy vortex of modern life. It is also an astonishing debut' - Douglas Kennedy
