Aka M.D Lachlan.He grew up in Coventry and studied at the University of Sussex He worked as a journalist and also as a stand up comedian before he started writing his first novel, Girlfriend 44 He lives and writes in Brighton, England and South Cambridgeshire Ron Howard secured the film rights for Girlfriend 44 and Infidelity for First Time Fathers is in development with 2929.Barrowcliffe achieved early success in the late 1990s as part of the Lad Lit movement, although his writing has little in common with other writers who were bracketed under that heading He is nearer to Terry Southern, Jonathan Coe and Martin Amis than he is to Nick Hornby or Mike Gayle.This isthan likely a matter of presentation, as most of the British versions of his novels have appeared in the candy coloured covers favoured by lad and chick lit publishers.Barrowcliffe s early work was noted for its cynicism and black humour, although Lucky Dog strikes a lighter tone, that of comedic magic realism.At his best Barrowcliffe can be irreverent and very funny Rugby, for instance, is described as a game invented by the English public schools in order to encourage homosexuality Of a woman who has had a tough time and put on weight, he says her life had hit the crash barriers and it looked as though an air bag had gone off inside her face He is also insightful Lucky Dog, for instance, says a lot about how we cope with death, our own and those of the people we love.Sometimes, though, particularly in his first novel Girlfriend 44, Barrowcliffe can be long winded in his comic diversions.The Elfish Gene is a memoir of growing up uncool, confused, and obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons and other role playing games.Barrowcliffe is certainly one of Britain soriginal and interesting new writers but it remains to be seen if he can survive being labelled as part of the Lad Lit fad.
