Lesley Glaister (born 1956, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, UK) is a British novelist and playwright. She has written 11 novels, Nina Todd Has Gone being the most recent, one play and numerous short stories and radio plays. She teaches a Masters Degree in Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, and is a regular contributor of book reviews to the Spectator and The Times. She is married to author Andrew Greig.

Her books have been described as 'suburban gothic' and compared with Ruth Rendell, Kate Atkinson and Ian McEwan. Her subject matter is often serious (murder, madness and obsession crop up regularly in her books) but with a thread of dark humour running through it. Her first novel Honour Thy Father (1990) won the Somerset Maugham Award and a Betty Trask Award, Now You See Me was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for fiction in 2002, and Easy Peasy was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award 1989. Her first play, Bird Calls was performed at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, in 2003.

Gleister is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

Praise for Lesley Glaister:

'Lesley Glaister has written a horribly plausible and crisply executed account of emotional trauma and its possible repercussions.' Sunday Telegraph on Nina Todd has Gone.

Glaister's evocation of the underside of ordinary lives, and her disturbed Nina's struggle to reconstruct herself, makes this an engrossing read.' Daily Mail on Nina Todd Has Gone

'Glaister, along with Ruth Rendell, has almost cornered the market in horror stories set in the suburbs.' The Times
