David Peace

Peace grew up in Yorkshire and attended Manchester Polytechnic before moving to Istanbul and subsequently to Tokyo to teach English. After returning to Britain in 2009, he moved back to Japan two years later and has been lecturing on contemporary literature at the University of Tokyo since 2011.

Peace is known for his perceptive fact-based fiction. His debut, Nineteen Seventy-Four, came out in 1999 and was followed by three further novels in his Red-Riding Quartet, which explores police corruption against the backdrop of the Yorkshire Ripper murders. His next novel, GB84 (2004), is a visceral portrayal of the UK miners’ strike of 1984-5 and won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for literature in 2005. His other works include The Damned Utd (2006), Patient X (2018) and Tokyo Trilogy, which follows a detective on the trail of real-life serial killer Yoshio Kodaira in postwar Japan, culminating in Tokyo Redux (2021).

Shifting across three twentieth-century time periods, Peace’s audacious conclusion to his Tokyo trilogy crafts a labyrinthine mystery entwined in an evocative social history of postwar Japan.
