just watched the British Book Awards on TV. I, of course, voted for Margrave Of The Marshes in the public voted book of the year category, which was sadly won by JK Rowling for some unknown book about kids pretending to do magic or something.
That’s pretty much expected in a public vote. What was more disturbing was that Margrave was beaten in the best Biography category by Sharon flippin’ Osborne! Now don’t get me wrong, I like the Osbornes. Sharon’s a fascinating woman, and as the architect of Ozzy’s career renaissance, she’s clearly a marketing genius. But her book better than the Peel one?
