So congratulations Phil, the book is in the post. 
Happy reading.

Pondering the Bookers

in

I've been reading nothing but Booker nominees for the last 8 weeks. I managed to read 8 of the 13 nominees and was lucky enough to finish the entire shortlist. It's been an interesting journey into many different worlds; from suburban Australia to a prison garden shed in Canada; from revolutionary America to jewish life in modern London; from the end of Jamaican slavery to airport bars at Gatwick; from backpacking in Lesotho to Egyptian grave excavations in the 1920s... Amazing how much thought has gone into all these works of fiction.

New Competition! Signed Salman Rushdie!

We are running a competition on our Facebook page. Price is a signed copy of Luka and the Fire of Life - signed by the very man himself.
