Guy Kennaway lives for pleasure, producing books only when all else has failed. In all of Kennaway’s work he likes to study oppressed minorities under severe pressure and then make fun of them. He is best known for One People about a Jamaican village threatened by mass US tourism, and Bird Brain about a community of optimistic pheasants. His latest book is Time To Go, a comedy about killing his mother. He has written for magazines and newspapers, as well as many film scripts and TV adaptations, none of which have been made. Not surprisingly he lives alone.
