It’s coming up to the announcement of the Colin Roderick Award for which The End of Seeing has been shortlisted. The full shortlist is as follows:
Collins, Christy. The End of Seeing.
Harding, Leslie, and Morgan, Kendrah. Modern Love.
Jones, Gail. A Guide to Berlin.
Kinsella, John. Crow’s Breath.
Niall, Brenda. Mannix.
Winton, Tim. Island Home.
I’m thrilled to see my book on this list of books by such accomplished writers in a wide variety of genres (novels, biographies, memoirs and short stories). In particular, Tim Winton’s work has been important to me since I was a teenager and it is a particular thrill to be listed together with him.
