The Commonwealth Writers’ Prize has announced the 2007 winners for the “South East Asia and South Pacific” region. Again, a pretty broad swath, so I think these gents can feel quite proud of themselves:
Best Book Award
Mister Pip, by Lloyd Jones (Penguin)
Best First Book
Tuvalu, by Andrew O’Connor (Allen and Unwin)
I had this announcement down for today, so maybe it slipped out early. Still to come — today, I think — Africa.
