Sebastian Barry's Days Without End won the Costa Novel category today. He was interviewed on BBC Radio 4 this evening, and gave a lovely account of how he came to write such strong gay characters: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b086kxpy

I brought the 13-year-old niece to town yesterday, and at the end we went to a bookshop and I asked her to pick a book as a 'bonus' present. "I don't really read", I was told. But when she saw my crestfallen face, she relented, and wandered the young adult section and picked a book that 'looks interesting' so she would be more likely to read it.

Today it won the Costa Children's Book category for 2016.

And today Sebastian Barry's Days Without End went on to win the overall Costa Book of the Year. It is a story of a gay relationship between Thomas McNulty, an Irish man who leaves famine-ridden Ireland, and his lover John Cole, and it set during founding of the USA. The judges describe it as "one of the most wonderful depictions of love in the whole of fiction".

It's going on my 'to read after I finish college' list.

Not a book but...

The Guardian today has a longish article in which different lgbt writers have short pieces about a book that they read which was special to them in coming out.

http://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/jul/01/book-helped-come-out etc ...

Two of them cite Edmund White's A Boy's Own Story which I read in my late teens. (I came across it in the ILAC library on a Saturday trip with the family because we all agreed we'd run out of the interesting books in our local library.) I didn't like the style of White's writing, though I did find the idea of 'cornholing' interesting. And I couldn't figure out the cruising scenes. I subsequently bought a copy, un-re-read, but on my shelf. Maybe it is special.

(Of course, Colm Tóibín's book had to be 'searing'.)
