Congratulations Ros Barber!

I know I’m a bit late here but I just wanted to say a massive congratulations to Ros Barber and to her publishers Sceptre for her verse novel (is that the right phrase?) The Marlowe Papers winning the Desmond Elliott Prize for Debut Fiction 2013.


There’s a great website all about the book here, and an extract here on The Guardian website.

To be honest I didn’t expect The Marlowe Papers to win as it is so innovative and ‘different’ so I’m really pleased to hear that it did.

What are your thoughts on the Prize winner?
