Piers Paul Read

‘Undoubtedly one of the most talented novelists of his generation’ (Sunday Telegraph), Piers Paul Read is best known for his book Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors, which documented the story of the 1972 crash of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 and was made into a film in 1993. He has won prizes for his fiction, including the Hawthornden Prize, the Somerset Maugham Award and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize.
