More About the Author

Tony Garnett was born in Birmingham, UK, and read psychology at University College, London where he spent most of his tme acting in the Drama Society and on television. Describing himself as a Jack of all trades, helping to make dramatic fiction for the scren, he has had a varied career as an actor, sript editor, screenwriter, director and producer.
He began as an actor, appearing in The Boys and a wide selection of television dramas from Z cars to David Mercer's Nuclear Disarmament trilogy. From 1964 to 1969 he worked on The Wednseday Play and produced many films for the BBC, including Cathy Come Home. He continued his collaboration with Ken Loach with The big Flame, After a Lifetime, Family Life, Days of Hope and the Price of Coal. He also produced and co-wrote Kes, from Barry Hines' novel A Kestrel for a Knave.
In addition he introduced MIke Leigh with Hard Labour, GF Newman with Law and Order and Roland Joffe's first film, The Spongers.
He produced, wrote and directed Prostitute in 1979 and Handgun in 1981.
In Hollywood in the eighties he produced work as varied a Earth Girls Are Easy, the Sesame Street movie Follow That Bird and The Shadowmakers,with Paul Newman, directed by Roland Joffe.
In 1990 he returned to London, bringing to the screen many single films and drama sreies, including Ballykissangel, Between the Lines and This Life.
He has also had a prestigious academic career as Professor of Media Arts at Royal Holloway College, London University and lecturing at many other Universities, with doctorates from London, Reading and Birmingham Universites.
The Seductions of Lucy Foster is his first novel.He is finishing his second, reading indulgently and avidly following the fortunes of his soccer team, Aston Villa.
The second novel, "Marine Ices", will be published early in 2011. It is very different from the first. "Lucy Foster" described how destructive a world without love can be, how powerful are those who cannot love and how vulnerable that makes those who do love. It used sexual power as a metaphor of class politics. "Marine Ices" is about the positive power of love, how it grows in unlikely soil and how life giving it is. This is a positive book about belonging, of finding yourself in family and commitment. It deals with love and hate in politics, but is more about the political temperament, spanning three generations from the early Sixties to the Twenty First Century, and taking the leading character from Santa Monica to London and to Yorkshire as she learns who she is.
