First off, a massive congratulations and pat on the back to my mate Jonathan for the nomination. And second off, what an interesting bunch of novels and writers I’ve never heard of (Priest aside). That’s what makes reading a shortlist like this so exciting. Exposure to authors and idea that until this point I didn’t know existed. Except review of the shortlist in the coming weeks.
