2018 Voss Prize winner

The 2018 Voss Prize winner has been announced, and the winner is

*drumroll*

Bram Presser for The Book of Dirt!

I had lost track of how many prizes this remarkable book has won, so I looked it up at the Text Publishing website:

  • Winner, NSW Premier’s Literary Awards: Christina Stead Prize for Fiction, 2018
  • Winner, NSW Premier’s Literary Awards: UTS Glenda Adams Award for New Writing, 2018
  • Winner, NSW Premier’s Literary Awards: The People’s Choice Award, 2018
  • Longlisted, Nib Waverley Library Award, 2018

Unfortunately I can’t tell you what the prize is worth because I can’t find that information on the Voss Prize website.  But from the photo I saw at Twitter, Bram looks very pleased:)

It was an impressive shortlist—I can recommend every one of the books that I’ve reviewed as very good reading:

Congratulations to all the authors, editors and publishers!
