Benjamin Myers’ Cuddy wins The Goldsmith’s Prize

We’re thrilled to see Benjamin Myers’ success at The Goldsmith’s Prize where he won the £10,000 prize for Cuddy (Bloomsbury).

Chair of Judges, Tom Lee, said that ‘the ambition, the risk, the virtuosity’ of Cuddy is what marked it as this year’s winner. Fellow judge and assistant culture editor at the New Statesman, Ellen Peirson-Hagger, wrote that the book ‘upends preconceptions of the ‘historical novel’’ in her piece for the magazine.

This comes only a few days after The Bookseller announced Ben’s new book, Rare Singles.
