Anakana Schofield

Anakana Schofield reading at Brown University

Anakana Schofield’s debut novel was called Malarky and it was told (in both first and third person) by Our Woman, a wife and mother facing her husband’s infidelity and her son’s decision to run off to Afghanistan. The Irish-Canadian writer followed that one up with Martin John, an experimental novel that may or may not be narrated by a sexual predator with an equally disturbing mother. (The book is written largely in notes and lists, so it’s hard to say whether “narrated” is an appropriate term at all.) The book’s shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize for innovation in form, which will have been announced by the time you read this.
