Britain Lauds Literature

This evening’s black-tie event at London’s Grosvenor Hotel, during which winners of the 2018 British Book Awards—aka the Nibbies—were announced, resulted in yet another victory for The Dry (Abacus), Australian author Jane Harper’s debut novel. It triumphed in the Crime & Thriller Book of the Year category over five other contenders:

The Girl Before, by J.P. Delaney (Quercus)
The Midnight Line, by Lee Child (Bantam Press)
Behind Her Eyes, by Sarah Pinborough (HarperFiction)
Spook Street, by Mick Herron (John Murray)
He Said/She Said, by Erin Kelly (Mulholland)

There were six additional Book of the Year category winners, all of them noted here; as well as various other 2018 British Book Award recipients—including Publisher of the Year and Book Retailer of the Year—which you can learn about by clicking here.
