Prized words…

What a week, people!

First, the rather amazing Alice Munro was named as this year’s Nobel Prize for Literature Laureate for her outstanding body of work (including her latest collection Dear Life) and today Eleanor Catton’s The Luminaries has won the Man Booker Prize.

You can see the last post on Munro here, and on Catton here and here

From a bookseller’s perspective it has been interesting how very pleased all our customers have been about both awards – nobody is dissenting and many are deeply pleased.
