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. Tom’s first novel, The Alarming Palsy of James Orr, was published by Granta in 2017 and his next book, The Bullet, will appear in 2021. He lives in London and teaches at Goldsmiths, University of London.
