Award For The Most Scathing Review

“Adam Mars-Jones, the novelist and critic, was last night named the winner at a booze-up held in Soho’s Coach and Horses pub, for his wielding of the literary hatchet over By Nightfall by Michael Cunningham. Cunningham, a Pulitzer winner for The Hours, made the error of filling his latest novel, the tale of an art dealer’s midlife crisis, with repeated references to earlier, and possibly greater works in the literary canon.”
