Simon Mawer is the author of ten novels and two non fiction books.
His first novel, Chimera, (Hamish Hamilton, 1989) won the McKitterick Prize in 1989. Two more novels and a non-fiction book followed but it was his fifth work, Mendel's Dwarf (Transworld, 1997) that established him as a writer of note on both sides of the Atlantic. It reached the final ten for the Booker Prize in 1997 and was a finalist for a Los Angeles Times Book Prize in 1999. The Gospel of Judas (Little, Brown, 2000) and The Fall (Little, Brown, 2003) followed, with the latter winning the 2003 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature. The Glass Room (Little Brown, 2009) was shortlisted for the 2009 Man Booker Prize and Tightrope (Little Brown, 2015) won the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction.
