Making Wolf at The Kitschies

Yeah, so, this happened.

My debut novel MAKING WOLF won The Golden Tentacle Award at The Kitschies.

The Guardian says:

‘The Golden Tentacle for best debut, worth £500, went to Tade Thompson’s Making Wolf, the story of a London supermarket security guard who travels home to Nigeria, where he is kidnapped and forced to investigate the murder of a local hero. Judge Nikesh Shukla described it as a “strong, strange political thriller that oozes with one-liners and thrills galore”’

Which isn’t bad.

For me it was great to meet one of my literary heroes, Margaret Atwood, who won The Red Tentacle Award that night. She was funny and just generally awesome.

Yes, Margaret Atwood wore a tentacly fascinator all night.

More later.
