Richard Milward (born 26 October 1984) is an Englishnovelist. His debut novel Apples was published by Faber and Faber in 2007. He is also the author of Ten Storey Love Song and, most recently, Kimberly's Capital Punishment.
Milward's debut novel is an account of teenage life on a Middlesbrough housing estate. It is narrated in the first person by several characters (including a butterfly), but mainly by Adam and Eve, two school students. Adam is a shy, ungainly youth with obsessive compulsive disorder, a love of The Beatles, and a violent father. He believes himself to be in love with Eve, who is an attractive and promiscuous hard-drinker and drug user.
