Australian Prime Minister’s Literary Award 2021
Complimenti a Amanda Lohrey che con il suo romanzo THE LABYRINTH (che rappresentiamo per The Text Publishing) si è aggiudicata l' Australian Prime Minister’s Literary Award - il romanzo era già nella longlist di ALS Gold Medal, 2021, e ha vinto il Miles Franklin Literary Award 2021 e il Voss Literary Prize 2021!
Dalla motivazione della giuria: "Amanda Lohrey has always been a writer of uncompromising artistic purpose (...). She has an instinctive, if understated, sense of form and an inimitable novelist's voice. The Labyrinth (...) is a novel of unusual gravity with a deeply poignant background which is also a quest for some shape and pattern that might give meaning to a life with a diminished horizon. (...) It is a novel in high realist mode that also has romance elements, if only in the way it encompasses a tragicomic mood and a certain formal audacity that brings to mind the moodiness and restless shifts of late Shakespeare. The Labyrinth has a gravity that outstares everything that may seem grey or gaunt in a literary endeavour where autumn seems to sink to midwinter. It is a work of considerable literary artistry."
