Last night I traveled up North to collect the 2011 Manchester Fiction City award. It's an award for the best novel of the year voted for by school pupils from the Manchester area. By coincidence, the ceremony was held just a few yards from my old school, so in my acceptance speech I could tell the audience what Manchester used to be like before they were born in the early nineties. Thanks to all at St Lukes who let me take emergency time off to go to the ceremony.
