Kate Atkinson Wins Costa Novel Prize For A God In Ruins

Book2Book Monday 04 Jan 2016

The pressure might have been too much for some writers but not Kate Atkinson: just two years after winning the Costa novel award for Life After Life, a major bestseller hailed as "astonishing" by judges at the time, the novelist has landed the prize again for her follow-up, A God in Ruins.

Described as a "utterly magnificent and in a class of its own. A genius book" by the judges, A God in Ruins tells the story of the second world war bomber pilot Teddy Todd, brother of Ursula, the many versions of whose life and death were recounted by Atkinson in Life After Life.
