Jonathan Griffiths was born in New Zealand, in the shadow of Huntly’s coal-fired power station. He first came to fame as the singer of the infamous punk band Proud Scum in 1979.

He spent the ‘80s and ‘90s in Sydney as a playwright and taxi driver. And he’s been hiding in Melbourne ever since, churning out his first novel and two collections of short stories.
