The Stella Prize!

Wow, what a week!  The Museum of Modern Love won the 2017 Stella Prize last week. It was awarded in Melbourne at The Arts Centre. I cannot express how extraordinary this recognition is for a novel that took 11 years to complete. Here is a link to the transcript of my speech on the night, the speech of the beloved Brenda Walker (such a wonderful novelist and Chair of Judges) and the magnificent words of the Susan Carland.  Plus some pictures of the big event.

I am so deeply grateful to the National Australia Bank for a prize of great generosity. And to The Stella Prize team who have been impeccable in their creation and staging of this annual Prize. Beyond the gift of time that the prize money affords me, the encouragement to continue with my writing is priceless.
