Owen Sheers - Official Site
Owen Sheers is a novelist, poet and playwright. His new novel, ‘I Saw A Man’ was published by Faber in June 2015. He is Professor in Creativity at Swansea University.

His words (and there are too many of them) feel steeped in pedantry. After reading this biography of his relative – Cripps was his grandmother's uncle – Sheers found that although he now knew the shape of Cripps' life, "there are pieces missing. And he has a rollicking good story to tell - but he writes (as he says of his distant uncle's method of constructing letters),".

It contains a bit of biography and a perspective of current-day politics in Zimbabwe. His essay Bomb Gone, about Britain's Christmas Island thermonuclear tests, appears in Granta 101. And, during the 1400s, there is evidence that the empire of the Monomatapa (or Mwanamutapa) had links with Arabs on the east coast ports, as well as with Indonesians who had settled in Madagascar.

His debut prose work The Dust Diaries (Faber, 2004), a non-fiction narrative set in Owen Sheers was born in Fiji in 1974 and brought up in Abergavenny, South Wales. Owen's second collection of poetry, Skirrid Hill (Seren, 2005) won a 2006 Somerset Maugham Award and is a WJEC and AQA A level set text. Sheers mistakenly asserts that the Mashona who make up the majority of Zimbabwe's population are nomadic (or if he is being deliberately disingenuous, he does not set the reader straight on the facts). Unicorns, almost his one man play based on the life and poetry of the WWII poet Keith Douglas was developed by Old Vic, New Voices.
