BOOKMARK author longlisted for 'Not the Booker Prize'

12th Aug 2013

We're very pleased to announce that Karen Campbell's novel This Is Where I Am has been longlisted for the 'Not the Booker Prize'.
Author Karen Campbell

Author Karen Campbell

'Not the Booker Prize' is an annual event organised by The Guardian as an alternative to the Booker Prize. Entries are judged according to the same criteria, with the winner being decided by votes from the public.

More information about the competition, and the opportunity to vote for Karen or any other of the authors listed, can be found in today's Guardian.

We wish Karen the best of luck and look forward to hearing her talk about This Is Where I Am on Saturday 19th October.  


I really enjoyed the event on Friday, and I am glad the audience did too.  It‘s been an absolute pleasure. It went really well, with a very warm audience - laughter from the start put me immediately at ease.

Off to Canada in the morning with Mark Billingham. Hope they‘re as appreciative as in Blairgowrie.
