Life and career

Preston's first novel, This Bleeding City, was published by Faber and Faber in March 2010. The novel won the Spear's Best First Novel Prize, the Edinburgh International Book Festival Readers' First Book Award, and was chosen as one of Waterstone's New Voices 2010. It has been translated into twelve languages. His second novel, The Revelations was published in February 2012, while his third, "In Love and War," was featured on BBC Radio 4's Book at Bedtime. Preston reviews books for a number of national newspapers and magazines and is a regular panelist on BBC2's The Review Show. Alex Preston is the brother of Samuel Preston, the former singer of The Ordinary Boys and Celebrity Big Brother contestant. He is the grandson of Princeton University English professor and literary critic, Samuel Hynes.

Preston appears for the Authors Cricket Club. He became notable as player-umpire for asking of fellow novelist Richard Beard, "Do you think you were out?" to a bellowed LBW appeal. For this he received the "Decision of the Season" award at their annual dinner.
