World’s Richest Sports Book Prize Long List Revealed
I ran this story on the blog on Sunday but didn't notice that one of the shortlisted titles was originally published here in NZ.
Confessions of a Rugby Mercenary by John Daniell (Ebury) was published here in 2007 by Awa Press as Inside French Rugby: Confessions of a Kiwi Mercenary.
Thanks to Jillian Ewart for bringing this to my attention.
And what a thrill for Mary Varnham, publisher at AwaPress, whom I rceall championing the book so vigorously back in 2007.
