An Interview with Kevin Brooks

Ben Screech


Kevin Brooks is an English writer of young adult fiction. He is the author of thirteen bestselling novels, as well as three series of detective novels aimed at a teenage audience. In 2013 he won the Carnegie Medal for his controversial book The Bunker Diary, a dystopian novel that was labelled by British newspaper The Telegraph as a "uniquely sickening read" which "seems to have won on shock value rather than merit", but which was defended by the Carnegie judging panel as "absolutely the book Carnegie should be championing – superbly well-written, atmospheric, and loved by readers".
