Just wanted to say a big congratulations to a friend on winning the L.A. Times book prize award with his DEBUT novel, ‘The Ghosts of Belfast’ (‘The Twelve’ in the UK).
Did I mention it was his DEBUT novel … and that he is the 2009 winner of the 2009 L.A. Timed book prize?!
… and while I am a big enough man to admit that I have some jealousy in my happiness (am I happous, or am I jealpy?) I am mostly over-the-moon for him.
Want to find out more about him: http://www.stuartneville.com/
