Sharp North Launch

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Patrick Cave's impressive third novel, Sharp North, was officially launched in a London vodka bar last night, towards the end of a full week of promotional events, which has taken Cave up and down the land. The tour ends today, with Cave flying out to Dublin, before returning to France, where he now lives, and where the thrilling climax of the novel is set.
Cave's is a refreshingly unfamiliar voice in children's fiction, partly perhaps because, as he revealed last night, he had never met another children's author before this week, when he was introduced to David Almond and Melvin Burgess, who was apparently intrigued to find out that Cave had acquired a proof copy of Doing It (at a bargain price) via an ACHUKA eBay auction.
