The Road Home wins — and now perhaps Tremain will get the recognition she deserves

10 June 2008

Rose Tremain has deservedly won the Orange Prize for her brilliant, complex and beautifully written novel, The Road Home. Now perhaps, she will be viewed as the writer she is: I think she IS our major British novelist, putting the likes of others from her generation in the shade — Amis, McEwan, Barnes. Will she now get the recognition she deserves?
