“The Cuckoo’s Calling” wins LA Times Book Prize

It seems that one of our favorite fantasy authors has now cemented herself as a real talent in the world of mystery as well! Last night, the winners of the 34th annual Los Angeles Time Book Prizes were announced, and J.K. Rowling, writing as Robert Galbraith, was awarded one of these prestigious prizes.

The Cuckoo’s Calling, which caused a stir last summer when it was revealed that J.K. Rowling had written the mystery novel under a pseudonym, won the prize in the category of Mystery/Thriller. As we posted back in February, the book was one of five finalists for the award, and we’re pleased to see it come out on top!

There was a ceremony to honor all of the nominees and winners, but J.K. Rowling was not in attendance. Congratulations to Jo!

    I just finished “The Cuckoo’s Calling” a week ago, and I really enjoyed it. Is it a classic a la Harry Potter, no, but still a fantastic piece of writing from one of the best authors alive.nnI’m excited for “The Silkworm” to come out in a couple months!
