The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton
I have just put it aside on page 508 to watch the presentation and I could not be more pleased!
Congratulations to our young and so talented novelist, from whom we will no doubt see much more.
The book is still alive and rather than cower under the threat of the alternative entertainment available to people today, they are taking the book to the masses.
According to the Man Booker Prize website, there is to be a free event at London’s Regent Street Apple Store, where Eleanor Catton will discuss her book and what it means to win the prize.
I hope Apple are offering the books for sale and not just their own devices to read them.
Ok, a big event is about to take place in the book too, so I’m off back there to find out what’s happening.
