My Book of the Year

By psmiddy, Dec 21 2018 03:23PM

Not a vintage year, but the long awaited Sky & Bullets Book of the Year Award goes to the late Rebecca Loncraine for Skybound (the original review is here). A lyrical story of learning to fly, and learning to love the sky, with a very moving back story. Pitching towards the style and skill of St Exupery and Ernie Gann – one can aim no higher in this genre.

The decision is entirely subjective, with a judging panel of one!

Honourable mentions go to Escape Artists (Neal Bascombe) and Nein by Paddy Ashdown.
