Anne Enright's The Green Road is Adult Book of the Year winner at IBW Awards
We’re delighted to announce that Anne Enright’s The Green Road (Vintage) has won the Independent Bookshop's Week Adult Book of the Year Award.
2016 is the tenth anniversary of the IBW and Enright said it was “such an honour to be selected for this award by my favourite people – booksellers”.
“Long may they remain,” added Enright. “Four or five years ago, we were all in a panic that the internet would eat booksellers and paper. But they’ve battled on and they’re starting to flourish.”
The Green Road will now be entered into a "best of the best" competition, which will pit previous winners of the award - from Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall to Sarah Waters' The Paying Guests - against each other in a public vote.
