Biographical Note

After teaching fellowships in America at Indiana University and Yale, Malcolm Bradbury began his career as a professor the same week his first novel Eating People Is Wrong was published in 1959. Much of his creative writing concerns academic subjects, and his critical works reflect his interests in American Studies, Modernism, and Postmodernism. In 1965 Bradbury became a lecturer at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, and helped create its American Studies department, where he was named a professor in 1970. In 1975 The Royal Society of Literature awarded his novel, The History Man , the Heinemann Prize, and his next novel, Rates of Exchange, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1983. In addition to novels and critical work, Bradbury has adapted several novels into scripts for the BBC, as well as creating and writing original programs.
