Congratulations to Nigel Bartlett

Our congratulations go to alumnus Nigel Bartlett whose debut novel King of the Road is being published by Vintage/Random House and launched at Glee Books on 1 February, 2015.

Nigel wrote part of the novel while at Varuna in September 2011, when here on a crime-writing residency with Marele Day, so it has a hint of that Varuna magic.

Here's just one of the rave pre-reviews:

My heart was in my mouth as the tension ratcheted up but Bartlett balances the fast pace with great tenderness, exploring what happens when family loyalty and love is put to the ultimate test. A brilliant debut." - P.M. Newton
