Anthony McGowan


Anthony McGowan was considering giving up on teen fiction when he won the Booktrust Teenage Prize for Henry Tumour, which also went on to win the Catalyst Award. McGowan’s follow-up, The Knife that Killed Me, was adapted as a feature film and he has won a number of other prizes. Meg Rosoff says, “Every writer hates to hear the words ‘stunning new talent’ applied to someone else, but in the case of Anthony McGowan nothing else will do.”
