James Scudamore was born in 1976. After a childhood spent variously in Japan, Brazil and Ecuador (and the U.K. some of the time) he read Modern Languages at Oxford University.
He worked in advertising for four years, and then embarked on an MA in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia.
The Amnesia Clinic is his first novel.
In July, The Amnesia Clinic was placed on the EDS Dylan Thomas Prize longlist.
