Professor Sam North
Associate Professor (E&S)
Sam North has written 8 novels and two films, the first a dramatised account of the life of Beat photographer Robert Frank, co-written and directed by Frank, for BBC Arena, which was a truly terrible piece of writing and yet ended up as 'Object Number W2287' in the Museum of Modern Art. His 2004 novel The Unnumbered was long-listed for the Man-Booker prize and in 2010 he won an Eric Gregory Award. His first novel, The Automatic Man, won the Somerset Maugham Award.
