David Peace - named in 2003 as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists - was born and brought up in Yorkshire. He is the author of ten novels including the Red Riding Quartet, adapted for television by Channel Four in 2009, GB84, which was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, The Damned Utd, Red or Dead, which was shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize in 2013, and most recently Patient X. He lives in Tokyo.
'David Peace writes the boldest and most original British fiction of his generation.' - Richard Lloyd Parry, New York Times 'David Peace is the English James Ellroy.' - IAN RANKIN 'Tokyo Redux represents another peak in a genuinely diverse and original body of work. This is hard-hitting, hypnotic, committed storytelling from a master craftsman. His words flow through a maze the reader will never want to leave.' - John King 'The first question when reviewing the third book in a trilogy is: do you need to read the others first? With David Peace's new novel the answer is no, but it's so good you might want to anyway ... A powerful, stirring read.' Sunday Times 'Peace builds a world at once real and deeply mysterious [and] brings his trilogy to a close with magisterial quality, the final paragraphs not just tying the various strands together but doing so in a way that at once chills the spine and sends the spirit soaring.' Quietus 'It's been worth the wait for the third instalment in his magnificent Japan-based trilogy ... a shrewd, penetrating depiction of a country with deep, twisted secrets, often hidden by elaborate formalities and ceremonies. Tokyo Redux is a fittingly perplexing and claustrophobic conclusion to a memorable neo-noir trilogy.' Independent 'The final installment of a blistering trilogy ... he's somewhere near his best in this powerful, overwhelming novel, in which genre excitement steadily gives way to the uncannier frisson of being plugged into a current of secret knowledge.' Observer
