Biography: Freelance editor and published poet, BITCH OF THE YEAR is his prose debut. As a poet, he has received praise from Daljit Nagra ('Dilger seems effortlessly to find his creative powers through things outside himself'), Simon Armitage ('a clever poet writing crafty poems') and the late Michael Donaghy, who said of his debut collection: '"Promising" doesn't do Dilger justice. He already delivers with flash and finesse.' Andrew lives in Oxford with his wife, Sarah, and greyhound, Dash, and is writing more non-fiction.
