2010 Prime Minister's Literary Awards

Completely slipping past me last week was the announcement of the winners of the 2010 Prime Minister's Literary Awards.

The shortlists were released back in July, so it has taken some time to decide on the winners. I fully realise that the Federal election was held in the interim but state based Premiers' awards seem to be able to get their acts together on this sort of thing.  These awards risk becoming an irrelevancy if they aren't taken seriosuly enough.  Set up a schedule and stick to it.

The winners:

Dog Boy by Eva Hornung

The Colony: The History of Early Sydney by Grace Karskens

Young Adult
Confessions of a Liar, Thief and Failed Sex God by Bill Condon

Star Jumps by Lorrane Marwood
