Simon Winder Book and Novel

Simon Winder - Author


Simon Winder was born in London in 1963, somewhat prematurely thanks to his mother's response to all the action and adventure in From Russia with Love. He is the editor of a number of anthologies, including the highly praised Night Thoughts. He works in publishing, most recently at Penguin where he had the perhaps slightly disturbing fan's apotheosis of actually buying the rights to Ian Fleming's novels. He lives in Wandsworth Town.
