Barry Hines was a PE teacher, working in London for two years before returning north and taking up writing full-time. His first novel, The Blinder, was written at Loughborough and finished while he worked as a teacher. Published in 1966, it was followed two years later by the novel which marked the arrival of a distinctive new voice and a writer who would tell the stories of those who could not speak for themselves, A Kestrel For A Knave.
