In April this year, Bernard Beckett’s futuristic and philosophical young adult novel Genesis won the prestigious Prix Sorcières in France.
Anaximander, a young Academy student, is put through a gruelling exam, the subject being her long-dead hero Adam Forde. What she finds out in the course of the examination will raise questions on what it means to be human. What makes a soul?
The trophy for this award, a witch complete with broomstick, has just landed in our office and we thought we would share some of the images for you.
I wonder if people find Oscar to be as intimidating on their bookshelves.
The Prix Sorcières will be flying off to Bernard in New Zealand this week.
