Alan Hollinghurst

novelist

Novelist, short-story writer and poet Alan Hollinghurst cultivated his love of writing at boarding school. Poetry was his initial love and he enjoyed the prestige that resulted from having his poetry published in school magazines. Hollinghurst went on to read English at Magdalen College, Oxford and started applying for teaching jobs. Instead of teaching, he ended up working as a reviewer in London and joined The Times Literary Supplement. Hollinghurst has won the Man Booker Prize for his novel The Line of Beauty, and the Somerset Maugham Award for The Swimming Pool Library.
