Alan Hollinghurst at the 2011 Texas Book Festival
(1954-05-26) 26 May 1954 (age 65) Stroud, Gloucestershire, England, Great Britain
He lives alone, explaining: "I'm not at all easy to live with. I wish I could integrate writing into ordinary social life, but I don't seem to be able to. I could when I started [writing]. I suppose I had more energy then. Now I have to isolate myself for long periods."
As a younger writer, before he received The Booker Prize, Hollinghurst discussed his early life and literary influences at length during a rare interview at his London home. This interview was published in 1997-98 in The James White Review.
