I am very glad indeed that this won. You will really love it, Cornflower. I'm prepared to lay a bet. All the books I've read of his are good. Hurray. I saw an interview with Shirley Hazzard saying she reckoned that either she or Nina Bawden ought to win as they're the only ones alive to receive the prize. What a very silly thing to say!

Karen, you DON'T need any more books - remember????


I already have that one, DP!

Dark Puss

Hmmm, there's probably few books published recently (or indeed republished) that you don't have! I'd suggest you don't add it to your tbr pile until you have got that down below 10 volumes. Now there's an incentive to rapidly deal with the backlog!
