Unfortunately, due to the volume of mail received, I’m afraid I’m unable to reply to letters individually, but if you want to write, the address is:

John Boyne (author),
c/o Simon Trewin Ltd,
Adam House,
7 Adam Street,
Royal Adelphi,
London WC2N 6AA

Note to Schools:
I really appreciate all the letters that come my way from students who have read THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS and am always interested by the questions they ask. Regrettably, I am unable to respond to these letters as there are simply too many to answer, so apologies for that. However the answers to many questions are widely available in interviews on the internet.

Also, due to the pressures of writing a new novel, I am not scheduling any school visits for the foreseeable future.
