Pester power! I’m delighted to announce that I have been shortlisted for The Guardian’s Not The Booker prize alongside five talented and frankly intimidating writers. This is all thanks to those of you who voted and I really appreciate it. There’s now another round of voting before the winner is announced in October, but we can take a breather before launching back into it. Here’s the list in full:
Louis Armand – Cairo
Tony Black – The Last Tiger
Iain Maloney – First Time Solo
Mahesh Rao – The Smoke Is Rising
Simon Sylvester – The Visitors
Donna Tartt – The Goldfinch
I don’t know about you, but I’m going to get reading – obviously I’ve read The Visitors and I have The Last Tiger and The Goldfinch sitting on my shelf which leaves two I’m curious about. Time for some shopping.
Thank you all again. I’ve been jumping around all night.
