I’m Karl Whitney, a nonfiction writer from Dublin, Ireland.

My first book Hidden City: Adventures and Explorations in Dublin, published by Penguin in 2014, was a Guardian book of the week.

I’m currently working on my second book, Hit Factories: A Journey Through the Industrial Cities of British Pop, which will be published in May 2019 by Weidenfeld and Nicolson.

My journalism has been published in the Guardian, the London Review of Books, the Dublin Review and the Irish Times. In 2013 I received the John Heygate award for travel writing.
