THE WINNER - SOLAR BONES BY MIKE MCCORMACK
What the judges said about the winner.......
"Politics, family, art, marriage, health, civic duty and the environment are just a few of the themes it touches on, in a prose that’s lyrical yet firmly rooted. Its subject may be an ordinary working life but it is itself an extraordinary work."
Professor Blake Morrison, Chair of Judges
