Red Spikes makes the Frank O'Connor long list
Thirty-five thousand euros would be nice, but I mustn't think about that. David Malouf is on the list too. Alice Munro. There is no chance. Very little chance even of a free trip to Ireland. Still, it's nice to have even the possibility of these things hanging about one's Julys and Septembers.
(God, thirty-five thousand euros would be nice...)
