ABIA Awards shortlist

May 18 2017

The shortlist for the 2017 ABIA Awards has been announced and I am so chuffed that ‘Goodwood’ has been shortlisted for two awards (Literary Fiction Book of the Year & the Matt Richell Award for New Writer of the Year). It sits in fine company among some of my favourite books of the past year. Congratulations to all the nominees. Winners will be announced at the ceremony next week and, while I don’t expect to win, I do expect to sing a song on the night, along with Jimmy Barnes, who has been shortlisted for his memoir. Very good.
