I remember that book!

Book awards are usually time sensitive, covering the best books of the year, so I was surprised to see that a first novel I reviewed way back in 2007 received a very generous today in Dublin, Ireland. The book is Man Gone Down by Michael Thompson, and the award is the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. Michael Thompson’s prize is 100, 000 Euros.  ( MichaelThomascreditBenRussell.jpgPhoto of Michael Thomas by Ben Russell.)
