Claire Tacon wins Metcalf-Rooke award

I could tell that Julian Assange had been rooting through my sock drawer, looking for secrets, because the condoms are still there. And although it seems likely that anyone reading this blog has already found this news elsewhere, I don’t want to be accused of hiding secrets.

So: Claire Tacon won the Metcalf-Rooke Award for her novel In The Field.

I am absolutely certain that this one must be about rabbits — I mean, look at the title. Or you could look at the publisher’s summary, if you believe that kind of thing.

    I was going to comment about your point of view regarding Susan Sontag and the democratization of the access to photography, but “I could tell that Julian Assange had been rooting through my sock drawer, looking for secrets, because the condoms are still there.” made my day (or night)

    Thanks sir
