Hugh Lupton

Storytelling is in Hugh Lupton’s blood – he’s the great-nephew of Arthur Ransome. Hugh tells stories from many cultures but his particular passion is for the hidden layers of the British landscape. He has written many collections of folktales and a novel, The Ballad of John Clare. His second novel The Assembly of the Severed Head will be published in 2018.
