Orange Prize

Ooh, ooh, Barbara Kingsolver has won the Orange Prize for her new novel The Lacuna. I'm a big fan of Kingsolver, but - and this shows how isolated we are out here - I didn't even know she had published a new book (her first since 2000). For those of you who haven't read any Kingsolver I highly recommend The Poisonwood Bible (her biggest hit) but also some of her earlier, perhaps more lightweight, books. Apparently The Lacuna is quite challenging, but I like a challenging (as long as it's not a polite way of saying boring) read. One for my Christmas list.
