Life, the universe and letterpress
How exciting. I bet they love the cover! And what's inside it of course.
Hey darl, caught this earlier on breakfastpolitics and sent you fervent congrats over the thought-waves. How excitement indeed!!
Nah, as I mentioned in the comments of the last post, the Brits and the Yanks get a completely different cover, so it's absolutely nothing to do with me! But I'm chuffed for Michelle. I noticed the other day somewhere that AS Byatt has joined the queue to sing her praises.
Byatt wanted to review it for the Guardian but Ursula K LeGuin got in first, so Byatt reviewed it for the Financial Times or something instead, and her review begins 'This is the best novel I have read for a long time.'And now this -- how fabulous for Michelle. And how infuriating, all over again, that they didn't even see fit to shortlist her for the Miles Franklin.
oh, I sent you a link this morning too....my comments seem to be eaten on a regular basis lately!But yes i was very excitement and I am sure the cover pointed the way. :-)Imagine all those folks running their fingers over your work.And yey I loved the book. Go her!
oops, didnt read that comment above re the cover. Bum.
How exciting! Great article with Michelle in the Sunday Age, too.
