barely a breath

The news has rarely felt so long. Edge of my seat, rubbing my hands together, smugly hoping I had predicted the winner when…

… a quick cut to Howard Davies, mid-sentence, he spits out that the winner is Anne Enright for The Gathering. (We didn’t see that one coming did we?)

She looks shocked, I look shocked. She scuttles to the stage, smiles and is gone.

That was it. All over. For another year. Thanks for reading along with me!

I've enjoyed reading your thoughts, jem, and hope you'll continue to post on books outside Booker time, as you'd previously promised/threatened to do!

Thank you for guiding us through your Booker journey so insightfully and poetically...
As someone who has not read any of the listed books yet, I now have my own readymade guide of what (and what not to) read. I look forward to more kingfisher ponderings in the future...x
