Keggie Carew has led a peripatetic and unconventional life. She has travelled extensively in South America, and lived in Texas, Barcelona, West Cork, Auckland and London. Before she began writing, her career was in contemporary art. In 2010, she opened a pop-up shop in the East End of London called theworldthewayiwantit, which she described as her "puny arm wrestle against the tide of consumerism", selling an array of unusual handmade objects.
In 2004, with sudden access to her father’s attic, she discovered two trunks of astonishing material that would seed the genesisof her debut ‘shape-shifting’ memoir, Dadland.
Dadland, published by Chatto & Windus in July 2016, won the Costa Book Award for Biography 2016.
Keggie lives with her husband in a small rural cottage near Salisbury.
