Winner of the East Anglian Book of the Year 2015 Winner of the New Angle Book Prize 2017John Craske, a Norfok fisherman, was born in 1881 and in 1917, when he had just turned thirty-six, he fell seriously ill. So - as with all her books - Julia Blackburn's account of his life is far from a conventional biography.
Julia Blackburn has written six books of non-fiction, a family memoir, The Three of Us, which won the 2009 J.R. Ackerley Award, and two novels, The Book of Colour and The Leper's Companions, both of which were shortlisted for the Orange Prize. She lives in Suffolk and Italy.
