About the Author:

MELVIN BURGESS was born in 1954 and was brought up in Sussex and Berkshire. He started writing in his twenties, and wrote on and off for fifteen years before having his first book, The Cry of the Wolf, published in 1990. In 1997 his controversial bestseller Junk won the Guardian Children's Fiction Award and the Carnegie Medal. It was also shortlisted for the 1998 Whitbread Children's Book of the Year. Melvin Burgess now writes full-time and lives in Hebden Bridge. The Guardian has described him as the godfather of YA fiction.

Review:

 "A grizzly, fast-paced novella... a great addition to this entertaining canon." --The List

"Realistic, gritty, occasionally gut-churning, Hunger is a proper bit of old-school horror." --Sunday Sport
