Indeed. Many congrats to him. I've not read the book but csn pretend I'm not a bit disappointed!

Cornflower

It must really be something special to have beaten Life After Life, but how marvellous to win the overall award with your first novel!

Claire

Can I whisper that I'm glad it won over Life After Life?! It's gone straight onto my wishlist.

Cornflower

You may, Claire!

Claire

Sorry and I know you weren't correcting me! May I whisper.....!

Victoria Corby

But didn't Kate Atkinson win the overall prize when it was the Whitbread with her first novel too? That seems to have been left out of the press reports I've read.
I'm disappointed for her she didn't win, but for us - it's still a wonderful book.

Cornflower

Oh, no! Not at all!

Cornflower

Yes, you're right about her winning the prize with her first book, Victoria.
Good luck to Nathan Filer, and let's hope this award sets him on as successful a path as Kate Atkinson treads.
