"Matthew Frank Voted No 1 By Waverton Good Readers!" ...
Here is writer Matthew Frank with his wife, Vanessa.....plus Matthew's award......
at this year's "Waverton Good Read Dinner", held at Eaton Golf Club.....with a full dining room of keen readers in attendance.
Matthew's book was read with great interest by lots of "Good Readers" and along with a massive pile of books by other first-time novelists, it was judged accordingly.
And "If I Should Die" ...featuring Detective Joseph Stark..... and published by PENGUIN.....was voted a very well deserved, much acclaimed winner.
It will be the first title in a new crime fiction series which the people of Waverton will enjoy when Matthew's next book leaps off the press...
The Award has been running since 2000, started by Gwen Goodhew and Wendy Smedley.
Winners include: Mark Haddon for " The Curious Case Of The Dog In The Nightime", Jonathan Trigell's " Boy A", also Rachel Joyce's " The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry" .
All books I've enjoyed.
2 rather strange characters attended...thoroughly enjoying company and dinner!
