Sympathy for the Couriers

I'm very glad to hear that my old pal Peter Richardson has won this year's QWF poetry prize for his very fine collection, Sympathy for the Couriers. It's perhaps appropriate, given recent events, that many of the poems in this book delve into venality...

Also good to see that Rawi Hage won for fiction, after losing out in both the Giller and GGs. If you haven't got a copy of Cockroach yet, go get it. Incendiary novel.
