Website launched to celebrate Malcolm Bradbury's work
29th November 2010
Authors have backed a new online resource established to celebrate the life and works of writer, critic and academic Sir Malcolm Bradbury.
The website - malcolmbradbury.com - was launched on the tenth anniversary of the writer's death on November 27th by the Malcolm Bradbury Memorial Trust and his son Dominic Bradbury and includes contributions from a number of authors.
Ian McEwan, who was Bradbury's first student on the creative writing course he established at the University of East Anglia, David Lodge, Christopher Bigsby and Giles Foden are among the writers who have crafted pieces for the site.
'This website is intended as a modest celebration of some of the many different aspects of Malcolm Bradbury's life and work, from fiction to television to criticism,' the author's son commented.
He added that he hopes the site will allow people to learn of the different aspects of Bradbury's work and encourage more readers to explore the author's writings further.
Bradbury's books include Cuts, Eating People is Wrong, Doctor Criminale and Rates of Exchange.
