Jon McGregor wins Impac Dublin Award
The international award is given to a novel from a shortlist proposed by libraries around the world. Jon McGregor’s novel – a story of alcoholics, drug addicts and derelicts – was proposed for the award by a library in Moscow.
McGregor had read an exclusive extract from the then-forthcoming novel at Greenbelt 2009 – which is now available to listen to or download from our Media section.
McGregor said it was “a real honour to have been selected from such a huge list of fantastic works from around the world”.
