We are delighted to share the news that PR Collective author Colm Tóibín has been shortlisted for Costa Book Awards’ Novel of the Year.
The Costa judges found Nora Webster – a deeply human novel which centers around a widow and unlikely heroine in 1960’s Ireland – “a beautiful novel which is a joy and pleasure to read”.
The novel, published in October, is Colm’s eighth. He is no stranger to shortlist success – his novel Brooklyn previously won the Costa Novel Award, whilst his first three novels, The Blackwater Lightship, The Master, and The Testament of Mary were all nominated for the Booker Prize.
The overall winner will be announced on 27th January 2015 and will receive a prize of £30,000, whilst the category winners will each receive £5,000. We wish Colm the best.
