John Eidinow has published three books with his co-author David Edmonds, each describing knock-down, drag-out clashes between men of titanic gifts: “Wittgenstein’s Poker” (Random House) which was short-listed for the Guardian First Book Award and translated into over thirty languages; “Bobby Fischer Goes to War” (Faber & Faber) which was long listed for the Samuel Johnson prize; and “Rousseau’s Dog” (Faber & Faber).
He was a presenter/interviewer for BBC Radio 4 and World Service radio, working in news and current affairs and making documentaries on historical and contemporary issues.
“Another Day”, a tale of love, deceit and espionage in the opening months of the Second World War, is his first novel.

“The storm that batters the magnolia’s
impermeable leaves, the long-drawn drum roll
of Martian thunder with its hail
...
lighting that makes stark-white the trees,
the walls, suspending them –
interminable instant – marbled manna
and cataclysm –”
Geoffrey Hill after Montale
