Shelf life: Peter Robinson

Crime writer Peter Robinson shares his five favourite reads with Judith Spelman

Peter Robinson is a crime writer currently best known for his series featuring Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks. These books are set in the fictional Yorkshire town of Eastvale in the Yorkshire Dales. This is no coincidence because Peter himself is a Yorkshire man, born in Armley, Leeds, who emigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1974 after receiving a BA Honours Degree at Leeds University. He took an MA in English and Creative Writing at the University of Windsor, Ontario with Joyce Carol Oates as his tutor and followed this with a PhD in English at York University, Toronto.
