Jess Kidd’s first novel, Himself, will be published in June 2017: “Diabolical deeds, ferociously kept secrets, black humour and magical realism abound in Jess Kidd’s richly textured, thronging debut . . . Kidd has imagination to die for and a real command of plot and character” – Guardian

Jess completed her first degree in Literature with The Open University, and has since gained a PhD in Creative Writing Studies and has aspirations to teach writing in the prison service. She has also worked as a support worker specialising in acquired brain injury and as a PA to a Rector. In 2016, Jess won the Costa Short Story Award for Dirty Little Fishes. Jess was brought up in London as part of a large family from Mayo, and plans to settle somewhere along the west coast of Ireland in the next few years. Until then, she lives in London with her daughter.
