Thomas Leveritt is half-American and half-British. He has won the Carroll Medal for Portraiture from the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, a Betty Trask Award for a first novel and a Somerset Maugham Award for the same book.
His novel, The Exchange-rate Between Love and Money, was published in February 2008, and variously described as 'dazzling' (The Guardian), 'crazed and hilarious' (New Statesman), and a 'love story, tone poem, and seething meditation on history and politics... by turns exuberant, furious, bawdy, and mournful' (The New Yorker), with a 'frankly awful jacket, designed by the author' (good old Daily Mail). Other reviews: The Daily Telegraph, The Times Literary Supplement, The New York Times, The Independent, Aesthetica Magazine, The Sunday Business Post, Texas Monthly, Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus, The Barnes & Noble Review, Tatler, and Arena.
