Mick Jackson

  • 5 stars across 4 books

    Mick Jackson has published four adult novels and two collections of stories, all with Faber. His first novel, The Underground Man, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and won the Royal Society of Authors First Novel Award. Mick came to children's books late, through having his own kids. The children's books he most admires are quite eccentric, but underpinned with tenderness.
