A British writer of innovative narratives marked by subversive experimentation, Khalid Patel often wrenches readers beyond their comfort zones. The English Literature graduate includes cinema, comic-books, videogames and street fashion amongst his passions, many of which seep into and influence his works. Wielding stories singed with sociopolitical asides, Khalid also seeks to fragment stereotypes of Muslims and writers of colour.
“This kid breaks some rules and he breaks them across people’s faces… Khalid Patel represents a new age in fiction. He examines traditional fiction and turns it on its head with technology and innovation.” – Eryk Pruitt, Southern Noir writer
