Joe Dunthorne is a Welsh novelist, journalist and poet. He is known for his novel Submarine which has been adapted into motion-picture in 2010 and Wild Abandon, which won the 2012 Encore Award. His last novel, The Adulterants is one of our favorite book of early 2019. Dunthorne makes his characters despicable but not boring neither unlovable , surprisingly, we get attached to them. Biting and precise in his words, Joe Dunthorne is certainly an author to keep an eye on for the next few years.
