Kort biografi
Peter Dickinson was born and raised in Livingstone, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). He received his Bachelor of Arts degree at King's College, Cambridge in 1951. He not only served in the British Army, but also as assistant editor and reviewer for Punch Magazine for seventeen years.
He has written several novels for adults, a television series for juveniles and many books for young people. Keeping track of the audience for whom he is writing is not a problem. He knows the voice in which he is writing and does not have to constantly remind himself. Many of his protagonists are female. He says, "...women are more observant. I think that girls are much more aware of social matters than boys, and therefore make much more interesting observers."

Over the years, Peter Dickinson has won many awards for his novels. In 1982 he was placed on the International Board of Books for Young People Honor List for Tulku and The Iron Lion was selected one of New York Times Notable Books. In 1989 he won the Boston Globe‚Horn Book Award for Eva.

"En tretton årig flicka vaknar upp i ett sjukhus. Hon kan inte röra sig, tala eller minnas något efter den där utflykten till stranden. Hennes mamma böjer sig fram över sängen och börjar förklara. En trafikolycka, långvarig koma... Men Eva känner på sig att det är något hon inte får veta, ett annat pris hon måste betala för att alls få stanna kvar i livet. Vad har de gjort för att rädda livet på henne? De har sin häpnadsväckande medicinska teknologi till förfogande. Eva måste satsa allt sitt mod och hela sin intelligens när hon vill utforska och göra sig hemmastadd i sin nya egendomliga värld."… (mer)
