Bernard Cohen wins the Russell Prize for Humour Writing

BernardWe were delighted (but hardly surprised) to hear last week that Bernard Cohen had won the inaugural Russell Prize for Humour Writing for The Antibiography of Robert F Menzies against a very strong field.

Bernard donated his prize to two organisations close to his heart and ours — the Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Save the Children’s work for children in immigration detention on Nauru.

All of Bernard’s work is deeply funny and profoundly serious — much like Bernard — and we are thrilled to publish electronic editions of his pre-antibiographical novels, featuring covers painted by Bernard himself and beginning with the multi-award-winning post-modern mystery The Blindman’s Hat and his first novel Tourism, which firmly established Bernard’s propensity to defy and define genres and forms. Both are available worldwide and DRM-free from the Ligature bookshop or your favourite e-book retailer, with the fractured road story Hardy Beach Weather and the post-apocalyptic Snowdome still to come.
