Congratulations Mr Meek

James Meek has become the first writer to win the Ondaatje prize for his book The People's Act of Love.

He has also sold the film rights and Johnny Depp is to play a leading role.

Thanks again James for the great reading you gave in our shop! May you and your book win many more prizes...


  1. Johnny Depp? Thank god. I was worried that Samarin might be a role that Tom Cruise would go for and then I might have to get all 101 Dalmations on you again.

  2. On the other hand, JD might be playing Mutz...

    Samarin would be a good David Tennant role, actually. Or John Simm.
