As many of you know, the Man Booker prize was announced yesterday, and we’d first like to congratulate our friends at Macmillan on their win for Wolf Hall! Please check out their post about it here.
But we’d also like to congratulate Other Press, one of our Publisher Services clients, on being shortlisted! For such a small house, Other Press publishes some tremendously well written and well respected books (such as the oft-Best-Booked Hurry Down Sunshine). Their novel of a fraying marriage, The Glass Room, was chosen as a finalist this year and, according to the publisher Judith, was the most absorbing story they’ve ever published. (It’s also the only one of the finalists currently in paperback: $avings!) Be sure to check your shelves today!
