Tom’s fiction and memoir have appeared in The Sunday Times, Esquire and Prospect in the UK, The Dublin Review in Ireland and in Francis Ford Coppola’s Zoetrope All Story in the United States, among others. Greenfly, his debut collection of short stories, was published by Harvill Secker and described in The Times Literary Supplement as ‘fizzing with an energy at once dark and playful, swift in its impact, enduring in its effect’. In 2012 he was shortlisted for The Sunday Times EFG Private Bank Short Story Award, the largest prize for a single short story in the world and in 2015 his non-fiction account of spending 51 days in intensive care was longlisted for The Notting Hill Essay Prize. Tom’s first novel, The Alarming Palsy of James Orr, is forthcoming from Granta. He lives in London and teaches at Goldsmiths College.
