BAFAB Prize Draw Result

Now that I've dutifully hacked back an awful lot of brambles at the bottom of the garden (not all of them because I want a decent crop of blackberries) and re-potted some geraniums and watered everything . . . it's time to shuffle up the names in my [rather inappropriately huntin'-shootin'-fishin'-type but nevertheless exceptionally useful] Muddy Island Rainy Walk Hat (pictured in action here!) and pull out the lucky winner of Harpole & Foxberrow: General Publishers .

And the winning name is . . .




Rob!

Congratulations, Rob - I'm sure you'll enjoy it, since you're already a fan of J L Carr. Drop me a line and let me know your address.

Rob blogs at Topsyturvydom, where there's always a faint aroma of performing seals and currently also a small piglet in wellingtons.

Commiserations to the 27 non-winners. Thanks for entering. There will be another prize draw here very soon, so maybe you'll be lucky next time.

Hurrah!
I think I should have bought a lottery ticket, as this is the second prize draw I've won recently. Thanks, Juliet, I'm delighted. I promise to blog about it when I've read it.

Delighted you're delighted, Rob! A worthy winner. Blogging about it is absolutely *not* one of the terms and conditions of the draw. But of course, if you feel so inspired, I will be very interested to read your assessment.

I'm writing this having just finished watching the DVD of Month in the Country and am just off to re-read the novel. As you rightly pointed out, J L Carr was a real one-off. High time for a revival of interest in his work, I say!
