Sebastian Barry wins Costa Book Awards

From The Guardian Sebastian Barry savours £25,000 Costa victory:

“When Sebastian Barry was narrowly pipped to the post for the Man Booker in October, he made no secret of his disappointment.”But now, finally, his novel The Secret Scripture has its prize, in the form of the £25,000 Costa book of the year award – but only by the very skin of its teeth…”

Sebastian Barry’s The Secret Scripture is available to borrow from the library. The other shortlisted titles were listed in a previous post.
