Piers Paul Read

Piers Paul Read FRSL (born 7 March 1941) is an award-winning English novelist, historian and biographer.

He was first noted in 1974 for a book of reportage ''Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors'', later adapted as a feature-film and a documentary. This was followed by some well-acclaimed novels that criticised English middle-class ethics from the less-usual viewpoint of a right-wing practising Catholic, with sin and redemption as recurring themes. Among his most popular works are ''The Professor's Daughter'', ''A Married Man'', and ''A Season in the West''. Read is also a dramatist and television scriptwriter.
