The Good Son makes another Best of 2015 list – this time from author and book blogger Lindsay Bamfield. Thanks Lindsay.
That makes 2015 quite a year from my debut novel which was…
Shortlisted for The Guardian’s ‘Not The Booker’ Prize.
An ELLE Magazine Best Books of 2015.
The Irish Independent Top Reads of 2015.
One of The Reading Agency Staff Picks Best of 2015.
Wales Arts Review – Fiction of the Year.
A Gransnet Best Christmas Read for 2015.
Savidge Reads and Pam Reader Blogs Books of the Year.
Here’s what Lindsay said: “I’d read about Paul’s debut novel on his blog as well as number of terrific reviews. I was attending the No The Booker event at Big Green Bookshop, so intended to buy a copy. After hearing Paul read an extract I was well and truly hooked. An original and authentic voice that took me there, to Belfast in the 80s, spending a troubled summer with Mickey – wanting him so very much to achieve what he hoped for.”
If you fancy a copy then about the only place with any first print editions left is Waterstones online. Alternatively, you can buy the e-reader edition at Salt. The new print will be available mid-March.
Thanks everyone and hope your new year is going well.
