For the release of High Dive in the United States by Alfred A. Knopf in 2016, the book was chosen by Barnes & Noble for their "Discover Great New Writers" program and was selected as a New York Times Editors' Choice. The book was widely reviewed. Jennifer Senior reviewed it for The New York Times and Thomas Mallon wrote about the book for The New Yorker. Review coverage also appeared in The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and other newspapers and magazines.

In May 2016 it was reported in The Hollywood Reporter that Lee's novel High Dive was being adapted into a feature film by director Brian Kirk.


High Dive, Lee's third novel, was published in the UK in 2015 and re-imagined events surrounding the Brighton hotel bombing by the Provisional Irish Republican Army in 1984, an attempt to assassinate then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher The Sunday Times called it "an extraordinary performance: vividly written, painfully human and fully fleshing the inner lives of its characters". The Guardian, after publishing a review by Jake Arnott, named it among their "books of the year" and stated that it was "a multi-voiced epic that leads towards a stunning finale." The Independent, in its review, called Lee "a wordsmith of incomparable eloquence" and also chose it as one of their books of the year. Not all critics were as positive. A negative review of the novel was published in The Financial Times, which argued that "the novel suffers from some bum notes ... the thoughts of the characters meander in ways that aren't always interesting or revealing." In an interview with Mariella Frostrup for the BBC, Lee defended his decision to tell the story of the real-life bombing through largely fictional characters.

In an interview with The Independent in 2015 Lee stated that he relocated to New York from London in 2012. The author's Twitter page states that he currently lives in Brooklyn. In an interview for The Paris Review in 2016 the author stated that he is working on another book.


Lee's second novel, Joy, was released in June 2012. It was widely reviewed, with The Observer declaring that it is 'exquisitely and surprisingly written ... it proves that Lee is a significant talent', the Literary Review saying it is 'an enormously impressive piece of storytelling' and Henry Sutton writing in The Mirror that 'Lee's the real deal—a British writer on the cusp of greatness ... A brilliant & powerful dissection of modern Britain' . Booker Prize shortlisted author A.D. Miller said that 'with its supple prose, ingenious structure, wit & slow-burn sympathy, Joy is a sly miracle of a novel'. However, some reviewers such as the reviewer on the Book Oxygen blog were far more critical, arguing that the book is unnecessarily 'complex and demanding' and can at times 'feel like a product'. An article in The Guardian alleged that Joy was inspired by the death of an ex-colleague of Lee's in 2007, while Lee was working as a lawyer at the same law company.


Who Is Mr Satoshi? was a runner-up in the Edinburgh Festival's First Book Award 2010 and led to Jonathan Lee being shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize for literature 2011.


Jonathan Lee (born 24 April 1981) is a British writer best known as the author of the novels Who Is Mr Satoshi?, Joy, and High Dive. The Guardian has described Lee as "a major new voice in British fiction."

The author's agents, Aitken Alexander Associates Ltd, state on their website that Jonathan Lee was born in Surrey in 1981, graduated from the University of Bristol with a First in English Literature and was working as a solicitor when he wrote his debut novel.
