Nam Le has won the $140,000 Dylan Thomas Prize, for a writer under 30. And how well-deserved!

Read all about it from the ABC, or The Oz, or perhaps what we printed in WBN  today (subscription required).

And do revisit my ‘responsive’ interview with Nam.

This is so exciting, when you love a writer’s work – because a prize like this not only brings them greater recognition, but affords them the time to continue to make a career out of writing. It’s wonderful to know that more of Nam’s imagination and talent will become available for us.

If you haven’t read The Boat yet, get thee to a book retailer.
