Matthew Hooton, a graduate of the MA creative writing course at Bath Spa, won the inaugural Greene & Heaton Prize for his acclaimed debut novel Deloume Road, which is published in May by Jonathan Cape. ┬áReminiscent of Steven King’s novella The Body (filmed as Stand by Me) and Mary Lawson’s Crow Lake, and yet with a voice all of its own, Deloume Road is a book that stays with the reader long after finishing.
