I was thrilled to be runner-up in the 2018 McKitterick Prize.

This is a UK award for a debut novel from an author who is over 40.  The winner was Anietie Isong for Radio Sunrise, a funny and poignant novel set in Nigeria.

It was a wonderful evening in a beautiful venue – Royal Society of Architects, London – but it was very very hot.  Stephen Fry was an amusing and benevolent host but, trussed up in a suit, I think he suffered!
