Congratulations to Juan Pablo Villalobos and his translator Rosalind Harvey! Down the Rabbit Hole is one of five titles in contention for the Guardian First Book Award, which will be awarded on 1st December. Juan Pablo Villalobos writes in the Guardian Review about how imminent fatherhood led in mysterious ways to his tale of a boy who can have anything he wants.
Booksellers will be pleased to know that a reprint was despatched from our printers to our distributor Central Books just before the announcement and wholesalers have stock. The reprint will feature ‘Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award’ on the cover and the glowing UK press reviews on the back. It’s a beautifully made book with French flaps and nice thick Munken paper. And of course it’s slim – perfect for a Christmas gift?
