Joan London Wins Patrick White Award

Golden Age (Small)

Freemantle author Joan London has been awarded the 2015 Patrick White Literary Award for her ongoing contribution to Australian literature. Established by the late Australian author Patrick White, who set up a trust with the winnings of his 1973 Nobel Prize for literature, this annual honour is bestowed on a writer of novels, short stories, poetry or plays who may not have always received recognition for his or her work. London, the author of three novels and two short story collections, said she was deeply honoured and moved to accept “a writer’s prize to a fellow writer”.
