Dowling is a columnist for The Guardian and has a weekly column in the paper's Saturday magazine, Weekend. His books include Suspicious Packages and Extendable Arms, a collection of his writing from The Guardian, and The Giles Wareing Haters' Club, a novel concerning a journalist who searches for his name on Google and finds an online club of people who hate him.
