The Boy in the Striped Pajamas: Character Map



Author - John Boyne

I was born on 30 April 1971 in Dublin, Ireland. I studied English Literature at Trinity College, Dublin, and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, where I was awarded the Curtis Brown prize.

I have published 11 novels for adults, a short story collection and 6 novels for younger readers, including The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas which was a New York Times #1 Bestseller.  Among my most popular books are The Heart’s Invisible Furies and A Ladder to the Sky.
