Nicholas Blincoe

Blincoe, a former rap musician and philosopher, is now a broadcaster and crime writer. Fascinated by and immersed in the drugs/music culture of Manchester and London, he has written three wildly excessive novels that are among the best of the British New Wave. Acid Casuals, Jello Salad and Manchester Slingback reveal an astringent imagination. What makes his excess interesting is his command of the language of cool; what makes his talent worth watching is his understanding of human beings.
