Thanks to Shots magazine where I picked up the news that Philippe Claudel’s superb novel Brodeck’s Report has won this year’s Independent Foreign Fiction Prize.

You can read my February 2009 review of Brodeck’s Report at Euro Crime.
One of the perks of blogging is getting to read, courtesy of Karen of Euro Crime in this case, some superb books before they become prize winners.

  1. >A superb novel and a superb author. Thanks for remind me that I have in my TBR pile also La Petite Fille De Monsieur Linh and Grey Souls. I don´t think the first one is available in English yet.

    >Okay, your review has sold it. I'll track a copy down as it sounds like something I'd enjoy.
