Lloyd Jones honoured by NZ PM

Lloyd Jones, the award-winning author of Mister Pip, received the 2008 Prime Minister’s Award for Literary Achievement at a ceremony in Wellington on Tuesday night. Along with Elizabeth Smithers, for her poetry, and Bill Oliver for his non-fiction writing, Jones receives $60,000 in recognition of the enduring contribution his fiction has made to New Zealand literature.

Lloyd’s novels have won a number of NZ literary prizes, and in 2007 Mister Pip won the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Text is very proud to publish four of Lloyd’s novels and we congratulate him on this latest honour.
