Booker Nomination for Patrick McGuinness

27 Jul 2011

Patrick McGuinness has won a place on the the prestigious Man Booker Prize longlist for his debut novel  The Last 100 Days  (Seren).

In  The Last Hundred Days,  Patrick McGuinness creates an absorbing sense of time and place as the city struggles to survive this intense moment in history. He evokes a world of extremity and ravaged beauty from the viewpoint of an outsider uncomfortably, and often dangerously, close to the eye of the storm as the regime of 1980s Romania crumbles to a bloody end.
