In the bin

I've just found out that Little Monsters was shortlisted by the Waterstones Book Circle as one of its February choices. It didn't win - Chris Cleave did - but it does mean that some branches will pop an extra sticker on the cover, which is no bad thing - rather like Boy Scout badges (I imagine: they wouldn't have me). The book will also be in a special Book Circle bin. Better than that other bin.

I am VERY glad it isnt going in the other bin. Congrats Charles... 'Shortlised for the book of the month!' has a ring to it.

So am I, Vanessa!

I have read both books and for Cleave's to be picked over yours is a crime against literature.

I'm touched, John. Thank you so much. I'm sure literature will survive with you around to defend it!
