Pulitzer winner Paul Harding appearing at Open Book



Tinkers, Paul Harding

Internationally-acclaimed novelists Jeanette Winterson, Paul Harding and Earl Lovelace are set to appear at Cape Town’s inaugural Open Book literary festival this September.

The three writers’ bright careers present enticing contrasts for the city’s book lovers. Winterson, born in Manchester, UK, won the Whitbread Prize in 1985, and has published over a dozen books, along with numerous scripts and play adaptations. She is best known for novels like Oranges are Not the Only Fruit and The Passion but also writes children’s books and fiction for young adults, and was awarded an OBE for services to literature in 2006. Winterson will launch her forthcoming novel, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? at Open Book.

Harding, meanwhile, of Massachusetts, USA, has just got his start – which has been an auspicious one, to say the least. With his first novel, Tinkers, he joins the likes of Cormac McCarthy and Philip Roth in winning the Pulitzer Prize, an extraordinary honour for a debut work of fiction, which was also named one of the Hundred Best Novels of 2009 .

Earl Lovelace’s bibliography reads as long as his seventy-five years. An essayist, journalist, playwright and novelist, in 1997 the Trinidadian won the overall Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Book for his novel Salt. His latest, Is Just a Movie, has attracted praise from all quarters, confirming his status as a master storyteller. 

Lovelace, Harding and Winterson will count among some twenty-five international writers at Open Book Cape Town, which will take place from 21 to 25 September at The Fugard theatre and other venues in the city’s east precinct.
