Independent Foreign Fiction Prize--We've Got a Winner!

Congratulations to Dutch author Gerbrand Bakker for winning the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize for his novel The Detour.  Bakker has won prizes before; indeed, his novel The Twin is one of my favorites--you'll remember how I gushed about it in an earlier blog post (click here) as a quiet book that just stayed with me for the longest time after I finished it.

I can't wait to get my hands on The Detour--race you to the library!
