About The Author
PODCAST OF EVENT AVAILABLE HERE
Born in the Kingdom of Fife in 1960, Ian Rankin graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1982, and then spent three years writing novels when he was supposed to be working towards a PhD in Scottish Literature. His first Rebus novel was published in 1987, and the series is now translated into 22 languages.
He is the recipient of four Crime Writers' Association Dagger Awards including the prestigious Diamond Dagger in 2005. He won America's celebrated Edgar Award for Resurrection Men in 2004. Ian Rankin is also the recipient of honorary degrees from the universities of Abertay, St Andrews and Edinburgh.
A regular contributor to BBC2's 'Newsnight Review', he also presented his own TV series, 'Ian Rankin's Evil Thoughts'. He recently received the OBE for services to literature, opting to receive the prize in his home city of Edinburgh, where he lives with his partner and two sons.
To mark Rebus' return in Standing in Another Man's Grave after a five-year wait, Ian came to Foyles to talk with journalist and blogger Suzi Feay. You can listen to a podcast of that event here.
