Featured in the Observer’s New Faces of Fiction 2015

As well as working as senior commissioning editor at independent publishers Oneworld, I write occasional essays and reviews, which have been published in Guardian, New Humanist, Prospect, The White Review and The Brixton Review of Books.

I have published two novels, Glass (2015) and Let Us Be True (2017). The former was longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize and won the Betty Trask Prize. I am now researching the life of Fyodor Dostoevsky. I live in south London.


Christofi belongs to the school of Julian Barnes … He has an acute sense of narrative and stylistic decorum. Nothing outrageous or soppy: emotions derive from the quiet, understated accumulation of events. Let Us Be True is only Christofi’s second novel. It’s tender and sensitively written with a powerful feeling for the passage of time.

– James Marriott, The Times, on Let Us Be True
