I am very delighted that I have been shortlisted for the 2012 Wellcome Trust Book Prize for Perfect People.

There is no public voting, so all I can ask you to do is cross your fingers! I am up against very serious competition, there are six authors on the shortlist – three novels and three non-ficiton. The winner will be announced this Wednesday, Nov 7th. If you are a gambler, Ladbrokes are running a book in the prize and guess who is the 2:1 favourite???! However, all too many favourites fail to win

You can see a one minute film about each book (Perfect People has been done brilliantly!) on this link:
