Biography William Fiennes

William Fiennes is currently Writer-in-Residence at The American School in London. His first book, The Snow Geese, was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize, and won the Somerset Maugham Award and the Hawthornden Prize. 

Named Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year in 2003 he has contributed to many publications, including The London Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement, Granta, The Observer and The Daily Telegraph. For Latitude, Fiennes will read from his second book, The Music Room , which is set to be serialised for Radio4 and a number of broadsheets. 

A sensuous tribute to place, memory and the permanence of love. Eleven years older than Fiennes, his epileptic brother Richard, is a magnetic presence. His energy influences the rhythms of the family and the house's internal life, and his story inspires a journey, interwoven with loving recollection, towards an understanding of the mind.
