Stephen Kelman is an English novelist, whose debut novel Pigeon English was a shortlisted nominee for the 2011 Man Booker Prize.
Kelman was born and raised in Luton, Bedfordshire, growing up on the Marsh Farm estate. He studied marketing at the University of Bedfordshire, and subsequently worked in a factory before writing Pigeon English, a novel inspired in part by the murder of Damilola Taylor in 2000.
Stephen's latest work, Man on Fire, is a fictional biography about an Indian Journalist Bibhuti Bhushan Nayak, who holds multiple Guinness and Limca Book of Records while at the same time teaches underprivileged children Martial Arts at the local Gurudwara in his hometown. Man on Fire is a study of human dignity and male folly; a story of transformation, loss and rebirth. This novel will be released by Bloomsbury Publishing house on August 13, 2015 in 28 countries.
