Stephen’s Pigeon English, which has also been shortlisted for the Booker prize, longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and was shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize, has been shortlisted for the New Writer of the Year prize.
S J Watson’s Before I Go to Sleep, which recently picked up the John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger at the Crime Writers’ Awards, has been nominated in three categories: Thriller & Crime Novel of the Year, New Writer of the Year, and Audiobook of the Year, the latter narrated by Susannah Harker.
The winners of the 2011 Galaxy National Book Awards will be revealed on Friday 4th November at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge. Dara O’Briain is the host for the evening and the event will be staged and filmed by Cactus TV, with a series of six programmes about the awards to be screened between 13th November and 17th December on More4. As producer Amanda Ross explains, ‘It will be far more interesting for the viewers to experience the event in bite-size chunks spread across six shows, as we will be able to properly focus on the award winners.’
