Jan Needle Book and Novel

Jan Needle - Author


Jan Needle’s first job was as a journalist on the Daily Herald and he was soon writing radio and TV dramas as well as journalism, stage plays and novels. His early novels for children include the anti-racist My Mate Shofiq, which caused controversy on first publication. More recently Jan survived an orchestrated protest over Killing Time at Catterick, his expose of conditions among British Army recruits. Jan’s writing is often unflinchingly realistic but is tempered by a warm humanity and inventive sense of fun.
