The Most Underrated Book Award 2012 [17.10.2012]

The Most Underrated Book Award, sponsored by Kobo, aims to shine a light on just some of the fantastic titles that are released by independent publishers and members of the Small Press Network (SPUNC) that, for whatever reason, did not receive their fair dues. The inaugural shortlist for 2012 has just been announced, with judges Amy Espeseth, Bethanie Blanchard and Andrew Wrathall nominating The Dark Wet by Jess Huon (Giramondo), I Hate Martin Amis et al. by Peter Barry (Transit Lounge), Two Steps Forward by Irma Gold (Affirm Press) and The Cook by Wayne Macauley (Text). Both publisher and author are awarded, and the winner will be announced at the opening of the Independent Publishing Conference during a special gala night and literary debate on 8 November at the Wheeler Centre.

*Readings will also be offering a huge 20% discount on all shortlisted titles throughout November. *
