Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky First Novel Award citation and Malarky on Canada AM

Here is the citation for the First Novel Award which I won on Wednesday for Malarky.

“Malarky is a bold first novel from an author whose prose hums with electric wit and linguistic daring,” Stuart Woods, editor of Quill & Quire and head judge for the 37th First Novel Award said in a statement. “The novel traverses darkly comic territory with intelligence and poise, relating the story of an unnamed narrator whose resilience in the face of life’s disappointments will stay with readers long after the verbal pyrotechnics have dissipated. Anakana Schofield is a true original, and her novel is a delight.”

And here is the link to my very pink looking appearance on CTV’s CANADA AM programme.
