Christopher Boon spent his formative years in a small village in rural Hertfordshire. He studied English at Manchester University and, upon graduating, worked for three years as an English teacher in Ogaki City, Japan. He now works as a teacher in southern France.
The Passing Of The Forms That We Have Loved is Christopher’s debut novel, published in September 2021.
He started working on the novel after his father died of oesophageal cancer in 2008 and whilst writing it his mother also succumbed to cancer. These experiences helped shape the novel. Christopher has also written a trilogy of screenplays based on loss and is currently working on his next novel.
