Toibin Trumped for Most Mentioned
Australian Bookseller & Publisher reports that touring international author Colm Toibin was beaten out for the top spot in their Most Mentioned in the Media list this week.
He was pipped at the post by Susan Maushart’s ingeniously titled Winter of Our Disconnect, which follows the popular columnist’s account of her family’s six month sabbatical from the internet.
Toibin’s Brooklyn has already received the Costa Fiction Award with huge international sales, so the Irish writer must be happy to share this week’s limelight. He’s appearing at a sold out event for the Wheeler Centre tonight.
