"I, Coriander" Takes U.K. Prize

Sonya Hartnett

Given that it's  Best Of season, the editors Trevor Jackson and Jeff Bryant at the literary blog Syntax of Things asked a bunch of other lit bloggers to name authors deserving of more attention.

One of the writers in the spotlight is Sonya Hartnett, who was nominated by Genevieve Tucker, of the Ozlit site You Cried for Night. Hartnett just made the Sydney Morning Herald's year's best list and she won a big literary award last summer, but she certainly is not well-known here in the States. Jackson and Bryant include several good links for more information about Hartnett.

P.S., Ozlit=Australian literature.  I borrowed it  from You Cried for Night and added it to my list of fun terms to sling around. Obviously.

Hi Susan, thanks for the link! What a lovely site - I'll have to come back and visit some of the Kid Lit blogs.

Genevieve, you're welcome! I'm glad you stopped by. I enjoyed reading your blog and your recommendations at Syntax of Things.
