Ben won The 2013 Northern Writers Award.
The opening chapter of Beastings won the Northern Writers’ Award 2013. Judge Sarah Hall said:
Myers’ prose is taut, confident, professionally polished but at the same time maintaining a sense of rustic and unrefined authenticity, that which is truly hewn…it feels real – rain, mountain terrain, bothy kitchen, vestry, and all.
Also published by Bluemoose, Myers’ last novel Pig Iron (2012) was the winner of the inaugural Gordon Burn Prize. Judge Deborah Orr said:
Pig Iron is an important book because it tells a story that has shaped all contemporary Western humans, but is routinely, inexplicably overlooked – the great move from agricultural life to industrial life.
