I’m overjoyed that This Lovely City has been shortlisted for the RSL Ondaatje Prize 2021.
The RSL Ondaatje prize aims to reward the author of a work of fiction, non-fiction or poetry that best evokes the spirit of a place. Six authors have made the shortlist. The other five are: Ruth Gilligan (The Butchers), Adam mars-jones (box hill), Nina Mingya Powles (Magnolia, 木蘭), James Rebanks (English Pastoral), and Francesca Wade (Square Haunting).
The winner will be announced on 11th May.
