Peter May is a multi-award winning Scottish author and television screenwriter. He is best known for his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy, set in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
The first book in this series, The Blackhouse, was originally rejected by all major UK publishers. It was eventually published in France where it was hailed as “a masterpiece” by the French newspaper L’Humanité. It went on to win the U.S. Barry Award for Crime Novel of the Year.
At just 21 years old, Peter won the Scottish Young Journalist of the Year Award. His dedication was rewarded with the publication of his first novel, The Reporter, at the age of 26.
His latest release, Lockdown, was written in 2005 but was rejected by publishers as being unrealistic. The book was finally published during the current pandemic.
Peter May's latest novel, The Night Gate is due 16 March 2021 and can be reserved on our catalogue.
This event is part of our Suffolk Libraries Day book festival.
