Best of Beryl

Beryl Bainbridge’s ‘Master Georgie’ was today announced as the winner of the Man Booker Best of Beryl, a special award in her memory. She is no longer the five times shortlisted Booker Bridesmaid, but the winner.

I have to confess I have only read ‘According to Queenie’ which was extraordinary and so I shall now turn my attention to the rest of her novels and give her the time she undoubtedly deserves. Better late than never.

Well done, Beryl.
