Mitchell and Butler's Indian Pale Ale Awards Announced

This year's M&B Indian Pale Ale awards (or something like that) have been announced with Ali Smith the novel choice and Christopher Logue the poetry one, for his latest Homer. I'd say place yer money on Logue this year, no doubt about it. Oh, and I did I mention they're looking for a sponsor? (Postscript: the always accurate Metro paper seemed to think she was a novice writer plucked out of obscurity to beat the Salman's of the world with her first novel. First novel? Obviously not the same Ali Smith who was shortlisted for the Booker and the Orange for her previous novel, Hotel World.)
