Sweet Booker news for Salt

Many congrats to my publishers Salt, who are today celebrating their first ever Man Booker Prize longlisting with Alison Moore’s forthcoming novel ‘The Lighthouse’. This is a great boost for Salt and, I have to say, much deserved – Jen and Chris Hamilton-Emery are a great, hard-working couple, and nice to boot, so I’m thrilled for them. Alison’s novel is up against the likes of Will Self, Nicola Barker and Michael Frayn and is out in a couple of months. You can pre-order it now via the Salt website here or via Amazon here. Congratulations, Alison, Nicholas Royle (Alison’s agent) and Salt… and fingers crossed for the shortlist!
