Introducing: Paul Sutton Reeves


Born in Hertfordshire, Paul Sutton Reeves is one of the wittiest Fairlight Books’ short story writers. Throughout his life Paul has lived in eleven English counties, teaching economics, working as a freelance journalist, and playing in a number of various ‘obscure’ music bands. He now lives between East Anglia and Brittany with his wife Catalina and two children.

Paul’s journalism pieces tend to focus on music and economics. In 2009 he published a biography of English avant-garde musician Bill Nelson, Music in Dreamland: Bill Nelson & Be Bop Deluxe. Paul writes experimental short stories, novellas, and is currently working on a novel. ‘I’m a writer in mid-career. It just so happens that my fiction has yet to be published,’ says Paul. The books that he keeps coming back to are Life: A User’s Manual by Georges Perec, Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges, If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino, Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad and Animal Farm by George Orwell.

His two short stories, a humorous pastiche The Darts of Harkness, and a magic realism story The Brief Literary Career of Lewis Burgess, are available on our website.
