Search - List of Books by James Hawes

James Hawes is a British novelist who has also written screen adaptations for two of his works. He was born in 1960 and grew up in Gloucestershire. He graduated from Hertford College, Oxford and then worked as an English teacher in Spain. After a short stint as an archaeologist in Wales, he studied for a Ph.D. on Nietzsche and Kafka at University College, London in 1987.

He lectured in Ireland between 1989 and 1991 before teaching German at the Swansea University. To date, he has published six novels, two of which he has adapted as screenplays for movie productions.

His fifth novel Speak for England (2005) led the Guardian to decide that 'James Hawes has matured into a wonderful satirist.'His latest novel is My Little Armalite (2008), of which The Guardian remarked: 'Hawes has developed into a prolifically inventive and increasingly subtle satirist'. His Kafka biography, Excavating Kafka (2008), caused outrage in Germany but was hailed (again in The Guardian) as 'this utterly brilliant and absolutely infuriating book ...'

In 2008, James Hawes also started as senior lecturer in Creative Writing at Oxford Brookes University.
