Christopher Bigsby is a British literary analyst and novelist, with more than forty books to his credit. Earlier in his writing career, his books were published under the name C. W. E. Bigsby.

Educated at the Universities of Sheffield and Nottingham, he is Professor of American Studies at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK. He is also an occasional contributor to BBC Radio, and presented Kaleidoscope (Radio 4) for eight years in the 1980s. During this time, he collaborated with the writer Malcolm Bradbury on an 8-part comedy series called 'Patterson', which followed the experiences of a new lecturer at a provincial university, and may have been partly autobiographical. Unusually this series was broadcast on Radio Three. His first book was A Study of Contemporary American Drama, 1959-66 (1967). One of Bigsby's recent novels, first published in March 2002, is the well-reviewed Beautiful Dreamer. His latest novel is One Hundred Days, One Hundred Nights, published August 23, 2007 by Methuen (ISBN: 0413776565).

Bigsby is also considered one of the world's best analysts of American theatre, and in particular the definitive commentator on playwright Arthur Miller. Bigsby's books on Miller include, but are not limited to, Remembering Arthur Miller (2005), Arthur Miller & Company (1990), The Cambridge Companion to Arthur Miller (1997), and the definitive work on the great American playwright, the 514-page A Critical Study (2005). In November 2008, Bigsby published Arthur Miller, a definitive biography of the eminent American playwright, based on boxes of papers Miller made available to him before his death in 2005, as well as countless interviews and conversations during a friendship with the playwright that lasted over three decades. Harvard University Press published the 739-page biography of Miller in the United States on May 21, 2009 and titled Arthur Miller 1915-1962. The second volume of Bigsby's biography of the playwright, Arthur Miller 1962-2005, is scheduled for release in February 2011.

In 2006 Bigsby published The Chain of Memory, a meditative study on memory and on the ways in which memory has operated in the work of writers for whom the Holocaust was a defining event. The book includes essays on Jean Améry, Tadeusz Borowski, Anne Frank, Rolf Hochhuth, Primo Levi, Arthur Miller, W.G. Sebald, Elie Wiesel and Peter Weiss

Bigsby was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2007.
