Small Scottish press pitted against big boys on Booker longlist
A classic small press operating from of a bedroom in Scotland is basking in the glow of having a novel on this year’s Booker Prize longlist, reports The Independent. Sandstone Press has only been around for nine years and has only published seven novels. Their book is The Testament of Jessie Lamb by Jane Rogers, who could win £50,000. I think if a book is good enough then it should be on the list regardless of the type of publisher who printed it. Can’t wait to see a self-published book sneak onto the longlist? Now that would shake up a few people.
