In yet another honour for Gideon Haigh, ON WARNE has been awarded Best Cricket Book of the Year at the 2013 British Sports Book Awards. Gideon had this to say: "As a cricket lover, I feel very blessed to have lived in Shane Warne's era; as a journalist, I feel immensely fortunate to have had him as a subject. Some of his luck now appears to have rubbed off on me. The British Sports Books aren't quite the Ashes, but for a writer they're getting close. I won't be defeatist and say that this is the best cricket result an Australian will obtain this summer. But for me it's a very happy one".
We are very pleased to announce that Jaclyn Moriarty has won the $30,000 Ethel Turner Prize for Young People’s Literature at the 2013 NSW Premier's Literary Awards. Judges described A CORNER OF WHITE (Pan Macmillan) as "that rare thing — an astonishingly original novel, that speaks equally to the heart and the intelligence of its audience". Congratulations, Jaclyn!
Congratulations to Gideon Haigh for his win at this year's NSW Premier's Literary Awards. THE OFFICE: A HARDWORKING HISTORY (MUP) was awarded the $40,000 prize, with judges commending the work as
"[E]legant, witty and informative... Haigh transforms detailed research on a seemingly hum-drum topic into a truly pleasurable and entertaining reading experience". Well done!
Our biggest congratulations to Gideon Haigh on winning the prestigious Cricket Society Book of the Year Award 2013 for ON WARNE. The CSBOYA has been won by only three other non-UK writers, and Gideon is the first non-UK writer to win it more than once. Gideon's moving biography of Jack Iverson, MYSTERY SPINNER, was awarded the honour in 2000.
