Paul Hoffman is an English writer, screenwriter. After a protracted battle with a British school, he nevertheless graduated from it and even taught English at Oxford, and also worked as a broker, a messenger in a bank, a teacher and a senior censor of the British Bureau of Film Classification. Paul is the author of The Wisdom of Crocodiles (2000) and The Golden Age of Censorship (2007), a black comedy about the modern film industry. "The Wisdom of Crocodiles" is a rather interesting and well-written novel, with several parallel lines in the plot - about an unusual vampire, about a police inspector who is in charge of an alien case, and so on. At the same time, Hoffman in his book also managed to touch upon the theme of the Wonderbrae boom, predict terrorist attacks on large cities and the global financial and economic crisis ... As a screenwriter, Hoffman worked with Francis Ford Coppola, and is now working on the film “Life of Sir Walter Ralegh "Based on a modern New York thriller. Paul wrote the screenplay for The Wisdom of the Crocodiles (1998), based in part on his novel. His recently published novel The Left Hand of God is the first part of a new epic trilogy. The book`s world premiere in January 2010 sparked lively debate among Western critics and readers. Desperate to determine the age range of the audience (for young people or for adults?), Opponents tend to agree that the book is absolutely universal. Nothing is known about the prospects of the adaptation yet, however, the fact that Paul Hoffman has successful scripts on his account allows us to consider this possibility very high. Hoffmann`s world is fiction, but based on real events. Child trafficking, a caricature of Hugh Hefner, outright mockery of the aristocratic elite of society - Paul Hoffman seems to have something to say to the world, and at the same time knows how to avoid prosecution. The second and third books are planned for release in 2011 and 2012. The rights to publications have been sold to more than 20 countries.
