Omega minor nominated for the 2009 IMPAC Award

(Ghent, 4th November: Paul Verhaeghen receives yet another literary award: the Prijs van de Vlaamse Provincies.)

It's now official: Paul Verhaeghen's Omega Minor has been nominated for the International IMPAC DUBLIN Literature Award. Along with 145 other books.

This award is special for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the tremendous amount of moolah involved - 100,000 euros. The nominations come from libraries rather than professional judges. Those libraries span the globe. And the award is open to (almost, there is a time restriction) all books available in English in 2008.

Last week Paul Verhaeghen traveled to Ghent (Belgium) to receive yet another award for Omega Minor, the Prijs van de Vlaamse Provincies.
