The Essex Serpent, which we publish at my work, has won Waterstones Book of the Year!
I honestly could not be happier, more excited, or more full of a sense of justice having been done (I bet there’s a long German word for that emotion) than when I opened the email. The fact that I’ve contributed 0.01% to such a colossal success is just amazing.
I haven’t written a proper review of it because it’s a work book, but here’s the one from Savidge Reads that I shared a few months ago and which is pretty much bang on the money. Safe to say it’s a magnificent story, with moments of such perfection and delicacy that they make my eyes mist even now.
Now go forth and buy!!
