Emily Berry grew up in London and studied English literature and Creative Writing at Goldsmith’s College. She co-edits the anthology series Stop Sharpening Your Knives and is a co-writer of The Breakfast Bible, a compendium of breakfasts. Among her honours are an Eric Gregory Award and the Forward Prize for Best First Collection for her book Dear Boy.


“What Berry avoids is
slavish autobiography.
Her writing is too
rebellious for that. There is
a constant sense of surprise
and movement… Berry’s
range is amazing.”

– The Observer
