Charles Lambert Book and Novel

Charles Lambert - Author

Charles Lambert was born in England and educated at Cambridge, but has lived in Italy for more than twenty years. His short fiction has been shortlisted for the Willesden Short Story Prize and his story 'The Scent of Cinnamon' won him an O. Henry Prize. His most recent novel Any Human Face was described by the Bookseller as immensely impressive - holds you completely enthralled throughout and in The Telegraph Jake Kerridge described it as a slow-burning, beautifully written crime story that brings to life the Rome that tourists don't see - luckily for them. The View From the Tower and the novel that follows will continue this suspenseful exploration of Rome's dark side.

If you like Charles Lambert you might also like to read books by Louise Welsh, Jake Arnott and Alan Hollinghurst.
