Brian Kimberling grew up in Evansville, Indiana, and graduated from Indiana University. As a student he was involved in a major study of songbirds, an experience central to his first novel, Snapper. Subsequently he taught English in the Czech Republic, Mexico, and Turkey. He now lives in England.

Snapper, which won the inaugural Janklow & Nesbit Bath Spa Prize, will be published by Pantheon (US) on April 23, 2013, and by Tinder Press (UK) on May 9, 2013. Brian’s work has appeared in The New York Times, on NPR, and at Flavorwire, and elsewhere.
