Why Wes Went for Writing Over Wrestling

When he was a child, Wes Brown wanted to be a professional wrestler.
Luckily, he outgrew that ambition and settled on another career path, one that he says he pursues with the devotion of a novitiate: At 26, he’s an author who’s been described as “a new generation Updike”, and whose gritty debut novel, Shark, has been heralded as a punch to the gut (“in a good way”).
Leeds-based Brown is also the director of DEAD INK Publications, co-ordinator at the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE) and book critic at Politics on Toast. Chelsey Flood, First Story writer-in-residence, talks with Brown . . .
