Helen Oyeyemi was born in 1984. She has published four novels including, most recently, 'Mr Fox'. She claims to have never read at Book Slam, but she has: it was at the Latitude Festival and we think she's blanked it from her memory on account of her fear of the countryside. Her story 'Violet Stars, Happy Hunting' is in 'One For The Trouble - Book Slam Vol. 1'.
