Chris Hannan

Playwright and novelist Chris Hannan was born in Clydebank in 1958. He attended St Brendon’s Primary School in Glasgow, then the Jesuit St Aloysius College. After graduating from Oxford University at the age of 20, he returned to Glasgow, first working in a homeless shelter and then becoming a full-time writer. He has written a number of plays which have been performed by the likes of the National Theatre of Scotland and the Royal Shakespeare Company, and has adapted the novels from Henrik Ibsen and Maxim Gorky for the stage.

Hannan has now turned his hand to prose, and his first novel, Missy, was published in April 2008.

He lives in Edinburgh with his wife Sarah.
