I just found out Bald New World has been nominated to one of the most prestigious literary awards around, The Folio Prize.
“The Folio Prize recognizes and celebrates the best English language fiction from around the world, published in the United Kingdom in any given year regardless of form, genre or the author’s country of origin.Today’s announcement of the list of 80 nominations from The Folio Prize Academy shines a light on the very best storytelling published in the UK in 2014.”
I am honored and humbled by the company which includes some of my favorite authors including Jeff VanderMeer, Chang-rae Lee, Jonathan Lethem, Margaret Atwood, Yiyun Li and so many more. The nominations were announced in the Sunday Times Culture and will also be discussed on BBC4 radio.
It’s been just over 6 months since Bald New World’s release and this is just fantastic news. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday!
