Other Prizes

09 October 2014

old book

I feel this morning that there should be prizes in literature for the following:

Most Ignored Really Good Book

Best Serious Novel With Sex You Would Actually Want To Have

Worst Book To Teach Other Writers A Great Deal About Storytelling

Best Sad Book That Is Not Egregiously Manipulative Or Contrived

Book That Stays With You And Actually Changes The Way You Think

Book That Made Most People Who Read It Happier And Nicer

And possibly also:

Best Novel Written Entirely Whilst Nude

Best Original Fiction Featuring A Duck Or Other Waterfowl In A Major Role

Because we ignore outliers at our peril.

Add your comment:

Drop me a line

Drop me a line! Forgive me if the response is not immediate - I tend to get rather behind. If something requires my rapid attention, please tweet me or get in touch through my agent, Patrick.

Cheers, NH
