Edward Berridge’s first book, The Lives of The Saints, kickstarted the original wave of 1990s dirty realism. Brutal, unflinching and funny, reviewers were captivated by it and Who Magazine called it pornography. Dog eared and battered copies have been passed from hand to hand for over twenty years. Edward’s next novel is a darkly comic domestic noir confronting divorce and aging. Imagine Big Little Lies written by Michel Houllebecq. As an author, Edward is concerned with sex, how women and men relate to each other and mortality.
