Lauren Beukes

Lauren Beukes is the author of Zoo City, which won the 2011 Arthur C. Clarke award. That’s because it’s bloody brilliant. Seriously, if you haven’t read it, grab a copy now.

Her first novel, the excellent near-future dystopia Moxyland, was set in Cape Town, where Lauren lives with her husband and daughter. Her next book, The Shining Girls, will be set in Chicago and feature a time-travelling serial killer.

As well as being a novelist, Lauren is a journalist and has collaborated on television and comic book projects. Here she is speaking about kinking reality at Webstock in New Zealand earlier this year.
