Alex Michaelides

Born and raised in Cyprus, Alex Michaelides obtained an MA in English from Trinity College, Cambridge, and an MA in Screenwriting from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. He also studied psychotherapy and worked for two years at a secure unit for young adults – an experience which provided inspiration for his chart-topping debut novel, The Silent Patient, which came out in 2019.

A twisty, ingenious psychological thriller in which a therapist becomes fixated on a famous artist who has not spoken a word since allegedly murdering her husband, The Silent Patient rose to the top of the New York Times bestseller list in its first week and went on to sell more than 6.5 million copies worldwide. It is being developed into a film by Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B. Michaelides’ second novel, The Maidens (2021) revolves around Cambridge scholars and secret societies, whilst The Fury (2024) follows guests of an exclusive – and fateful – get-together a former movie star organises on a private Greek island.
