The narrow road to the deep north

 

Here is the announcement from PW.

This was the first year that any English language fiction title was eligible.  The resulting controversy concerned Commonwealth countries being overlooked.  Flanagan talks about this in the Guardian announcement. A winner from Australia should slow down this discussion for this year.

Sno-Isle owns all for formats of this title except 3M ebook which Darren is purchasing.
