Wonderful news, with the UK edition of Five Boxes not only making it onto the shortlist of the Lakeland Book of the Year awards, but actually winning the Zeffirellis category! Unfortunately, I couldn't make to the ceremony – at the luxurious Armithwaite Hall – it but my daughter, Isobel, was there to accept the award on my behalf. The lucky thing also got to meet the legendary Hunter Davies.
