Costa Book of the Year Award 2011

Costa Book AwardsAndrew Miller’s sixth novel, Pure, has won the Costa Book of the Year award, announced last night.

Four other titles were in contention for the award: first novel Tiny Sunbirds Far Away by Christie Watson, a biography of poet Edward Thomas Now All Roads Lead to France by Matthew Hollis, a poetry collection The Bees by poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy, and a children’s novel Blood Red Road by Moira Young (her first book).

We have all five titles in the library on a display table—although a few seem to be on loan already.
