Never Give Up, Never Surrender

The Independent: “The frustrated efforts of Catherine O’Flynn, a former postwoman who tried and failed 15 times to get her work published, were finally rewarded yesterday when her first book was shortlisted for the £25,000 Costa Book Awards.”

Incidentally, Rupert Thomson made the shortlist too.
