Congratulations to Nathan Filer for winning the Costa Prize, and to Charlotte Farmer (who's handwriting is on the cover)

As a big-time reader I always keep a close eye on the literary awards, and this year are especially happy that Nathan Filer's first novel 'The shock of the Fall' won the Costa Prize.

Writer of The Shock of the Fall, Nathan Filer, pictured, teaches creative writing at Bath Spa University - but he also had a career as a mental health nurse  
At New House, we are also very pleased as our clever illustrator, Charlotte Farmer wrote the words for the front cover and contributed towards making the book such a powerful read.

Maybe you can judge a book by the cover - especially if Charlotte has had a hand in the design!

The BBC  made a short film about the making of the cover, and Charlotte appears towards the end. Please click on the image  to watch....
