William Horwood Book and Novel

William Horwood - Author


William Horwood was born in Oxford in 1944, the illegitimate last child of five. He was a feature editor with the Daily Mail until 1978 when he began work on the first of his now classic Duncton Chronicles series which became instant international bestsellers. Despite their enormous success, and that of his later novels, Horwood has written that he would gladly have exchanged them all to have known the identity of his father and ‘held his hand, if only for a moment’. William has been married three times, has six children and now lives in Oxford, just a few hundred yards from where he was born.

If you like William Horwood you might also like to read books by Alan Garner, Lev Grossman and David Gemmell.
