from the Guardian.
Rain Before it Falls is getting some very good attention in Britain where the book is already out. It's about six months away in North America and he's desert island stuff for me.
The new book seems like quite a departure for the man who wrote the Rotters Club and What a Carve-Up (love it!), but I'll follow him anywhere.
Honestly, who picks these Booker short lists? Okay, that's not fair, it's not a bad list.
Hey Penguin, all I want for Christmas is an ARC.
