Howard Cunnell

Howard Cunnell’s acclaimed memoir Fathers and Sons was read on BBC Radio 4’s Book of the Week and described as ‘unique, and uniquely beautiful’ (Financial Times); it explores his experiences as a fatherless man raising a transgender son. Cunnell’s essays on Buddhism and masculinity have appeared in the Guardian and Lion’s Roar; and sections of Sun Country, a narrative poem in progress, have been published by Tangerine Press. His novel The Sea on Fire draws from Cunnell’s life as a dive guide and scuba instructor. He has a PhD from the University of London, and is the contributing editor of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road – The Original Scroll which the New York Times called ‘the living version for our time’.
