Christopher Osborn

Christopher's first novel, A Sense of Touch, was published by John Murray twenty-six years ago, with the US rights sold at auction to Harper and Row, and UK paperback rights sold to Flamingo. He’s not written since then, spending the intervening years as a concert pianist and music teacher.

“Like the ancient mariner’s, Christopher Osborn’s voice compels one to listen to his strange, alarming, and ultimately rapturous story. You ignore him at your peril.” – John Ashbery

“Let me say at once that I think this novel very remarkable; it contains some things which seem to me better done than I have ever seen them done before.” – Stephen Spender

“A major new writing talent.” – Time Out
