Amanda Craig

British novelist, born in 1959. Craig worked in advertising and journalism before becoming a full-time writer. She is married with two children and lives in London.

Craig has so far published a cycle of four novels which deal with contemporary British society, often in a satirical manner. Her approach to writing fiction has been influenced by, and compared to that of, Charles Dickens and Anthony Trollope. Although each novel can be read separately, they are linked to each other by recurring characters. Usually, Craig takes a minor character and makes him or her the protagonist of her next novel.

  • Foreign Bodies (1990)
  • A Private Place (1991)
  • A Vicious Circle (1996)
  • In a Dark Wood (2000)

Amanda Craig is currently working on a sequel entitled Love in Idleness (due June 2003).
