M. G. Sanchez

M. G. Sanchez was born in Gibraltar in 1968. He was educated at Bayside Comprehensive School and at the University of Leeds, where he took BA, MA and PhD degrees in English Literature. He has written seven books about Gibraltar – three novels (The Escape Artist, Solitude House and Jonathan Gallardo), two collections of stories (Rock Black and Diary of a Victorian Colonial), a biographical tome (Past: A Memoir) and a book of essays (The Prostitutes of Serruya’s Lane and other Hidden Histories) – and also edited two anthologies of Gibraltar–related writing (Georgian and Victorian Gibraltar: Incredible Eyewitness Accounts and Writing the Rock of Gibraltar: An Anthology of Literary Texts, 1720-1890). Over the years he has spoken about Gibraltarian identity on radio progammes such as the BBC World Service's 'The Cultural Frontline', ABC Australia's 'Late Night Live' and Catalan Radio station Antena Caro's 'Lletres Ebrenques'. He has also talked about Gibraltarian matters at universities in Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal and the UK. In the mid-2000s he spent three years living in Bombay, India and, more recently, between 2014 and 2016, he was based in Tokyo, Japan. These days he divides his time between Yorkshire and Gibraltar.
