We are delighted to announce that Blue Ormer will be publishing a biography of G.B. Edwards this autumn written by Professor Edward Chaney.

G.B. Edwards is best known for his only novel, The Book of Ebenezer Le Page which was published posthumously in 1981 to critical acclaim. However very little has been known about his upbringing in Guernsey, and his life before he settled in Weymouth in the early 1970s.

In the 35 years since the novel was published, Professor Chaney has been researching the life of his reclusive friend, collecting stories and anecdotes from his friends and relations, revealing how extensively the author plundered his own experiences as inspiration for the events which shape his novel.

The book will be published this autumn. To keep abreast of the latest news, please follow us on Twitter (@blueormer) or Like our Facebook page (Blue Ormer). Or you can subscribe to our mailing list, using the link on our main page.
