Kirk Writer in Residence, William Boyle

William Boyle is from Brooklyn, New York. His books include: Gravesend, which was nominated for the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière in France and shortlisted for the John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger in the UK; The Lonely Witness, which is nominated for the Hammett Prize; and, most recently, A Friend Is a Gift You Give Yourself. He lives in Oxford, Mississippi.

Regarding his most recent novel, Joe R. Lansdale, author of the Hap and Leonard Series, The Bottoms, Edge of Dark Water, Sunset and Sawdust, and Cold in July, writes: “A brilliant and nasty piece of joyful ambiguity that I loved deeply.  What a marvelous and unexpected bunch of female characters, in particular.  With this one, William Boyle vaults into the big time, or he sure sure should.”
