Memoirs of a Dipper

Nell Leyshon

Gary is still at junior school when his father first takes him out on the rob. He proves a fast learner; still not much more than a child the first time he gets caught, and a career criminal as soon as he is out again. But Gary is also fiercely intelligent - he often knows more about the antique furniture he is stealing than the people who owned it, and is confident in his ability to trick his way out of any situation, always one step ahead. But all that changes when he meets Mandy.

Nell Leyshon's first novel, Black Dirt, was longlisted for the Orange Prize, and shortlisted for the Commonwealth Prize. Her most recent novel was The Colour of Milk, which was dramatised on BBC Radio 4, and her plays include Comfort Me With Apples, which won an Evening Standard Award, and Bedlam, which was the first play written by a woman for Shakespeare's Globe. She writes for BBC Radio 3 and 4, and won the Richard Imison Award for her first radio play. Nell was born in Glastonbury and lives in Dorset.
