NfB in German...

Dear All,

More brilliant news - Harper Collins Germany have bought the rights to publish NfB there under the title Familie und andere Trostpreise (Family and other Consolation Prizes), which I think is a great title. Not sure when publication will be, can't imagine the translation process is a quick one, but thinking Spring / Summer 2018. I've had a sneak preview of the cover, which looks fab too, and will post that when it's all finalised. Yay.

Thanks to all of you who've voted for the Not The Booker shortlist and apologies if it's been a bit of a faff, but you never know, it might all prove worth it! If you haven't voted, but would like to, there's still time - deadline is midnight tomorrow (Monday 7th). You need to sign up as a Guardian member first, then it'll show you the comments where all the votes are posted, and you need to follow the format for your vote and post a short review. See what I mean by faff? Here's the (shortened by me) link:

Happy reading.
