Age Book of the Year winners

Everybody and their literary dog has already covered the winners of the 2009 Age Book of the Year awards, but I just wanted to say congrats to Peter Porter, Guy Rundle and Steven Amsterdam for their victories in the poetry, nonfiction and fiction categories respectively.

It’s great to see Steven’s book pick up the prize. It’s a victory for first-timers, and also great to see a book published by indie-kids Sleepers Publishing standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Penguin and Picador. Steven scoring the overall Book of the Year Award as well just makes the victory all the more sweet for all concerned, I should think.

    And…Adam Ford wins – randomly placed stockphoto pic award for “Man Bites Dog” appearing on Darebin City Council website – http://www.darebin.vic.gov.au/Page/page.asp?page_Id=6283

      not entirely random – i’ve had stuff to do with northern notes before, since parts of MBD are set in yon City of Darebin. They did a dramatic reading of scenes from the book as part of the first Northern Notes festival, iirc, though I sadly couldn’t attend.

      Nice to see how beaten up the spine of that copy is – i love a well-thumbed book.
