Not two weeks on from winning the Baileys Prize for Fiction, Lisa McInerney has picked up the Desmond Elliott Prize for New Fiction, described as “The UK’s most prestigious award for first-time novelists.” In doing so, she has become “A major literary figure,” apparently. God alone knows what she’ll do for an encore, but I for one have every faith in her. She’s the berries!
Last week, the brilliant Lisa McInerney (aka the former Sweary Lady) won the Baileys Prize for Fiction for her magnificent debut novel, The Glorious Heresies. Those of you familiar with these parts will recognize Lisa from my Phriends and Fenomena page and her blurb on the front cover of Breakfast at Cannibal Joe’s. Needless to say, we are totally delighted with Lisa’s win, which is not to say that we didn’t think it was a foregone conclusion or that she’d undoubtedly get the recognition she deserved at some point. It’s just great to see a writer of such undeniable talent achieve this level of success so early in her career, especially when she’s not just a fantastic writer but also a thoroughly lovely and wonderful person. Well done, Sweary!
