Meet the Author

Neil Mckenna is an award-winning journalist and writer who has written for the Independent, the Observer, the Guardian, the New Statesman and for Channel 4 Television.

He has also worked extensively in the gay press in Britain and the United States. He is the author of two ground-breaking books about men who have sex with men and Aids in the developing world, and his first biography The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde was a critical and a commercial success.  No doubt, his latest work, Fanny & Stella,  a tale of cross-dressing centred around a trial that shook Victorian England, will be just as successful.
