Author Emily Perkins 'pleased' with Montana Book Award

28th July 2009

Author Emily Perkins was pleased with her recognition at the Montana Book Awards, where she picked up the top accolade.

The New Zealand author won the Montana Medal for Fiction at the award ceremony in Auckland, New Zealand for her psychological thriller Novel About My Wife.

Speaking on Radio New Zealand's Morning Report, the writer described the award as 'just a really lovely recognition'.

She said: 'It was a great shortlist and all of the books that were being recognised last night were fantastic.'

Meanwhile, Sam Sampson picked up the NZSA Jessie Mackay Award for the Best First Book of Poetry at the Montana Poetry Day.

The book was published by the Auckland University Press with assistance from Creative New Zealand.

Mr Sampson said that he draws his inspiration from 'numerous sources: magazines, lyrics, business manuals, tide charts, overheard conversations'.

Jill Trevelyan picked up the non-fiction award for her biography Rita Angus: An Artist's Life.
