“I’m really pleased – and somewhat astonished – to announce that my new book ‘Diary of a Somebody’ has been shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award. Presumably there must have been some mix-up with the nominations but I think it’s too late now for them to take it back now.”
Well, Mr. Bilston might be somewhat astonished, but I am not. I knew this one was special. All poetry lovers and poets, you really should read Diary of a Somebody.
