Jonathan Pinnock, who was shortlisted for the 3rd Bristol Short Story Prize in 2010, has recently had his 2nd book of the year published, The Truth about Archie and Pie. The novel, published by Farrago, has been receiving lots of praise, including from publisher Scott Pack, who calls it “Funny, clever and sometimes brilliantly daft.”
Earlier in the year Jonathan’s short story collection, Dip Flash, was published by Cultured Llama. Joanne Harris says of the book: “It’s really quite a remarkable collection – compact, witty, incisive and surreal. Loved it!” and David Gaffney says: “Endlessly inventive and astonishingly original these sharply executed slivers of wit and fun are well-crafted yet have at the same time a rawness that makes you feel that they could have sprung out from Pinnock’s mind in one single unedited bound.”
Congratulations to Jonathan and we look forward to reading more of his witty, original writing in the future.
Jonathan’s short story, rZr and Napoleon, was shortlisted for the 2010 Bristol Short Story Prize and published in our 3rd anthology.
