    I missed the coverage on tv but the winning book sounds very interesting.

    ‘Much of the novel takes place in the bardo, a Tibetan term for the Buddhist"intermediate state" between death and reincarnation when the soul is not connected to a body.’

    I think I’m intrigued enough to read it. Apparently it’s the authors first full length novel and he usually writes short stories. So he must be exceptionally pleased with the reception the book has got.
