SFX - - The Clarke Award -

Win­ner for Per­dido Street Sta­tion (2001), Iron Coun­cil (2005) and The City & The City (2010)

“[Win­ning the Clarke meant a lot] both in terms of no­tice from the out­side, but also, at least as im­por­tant for me, and I pre­sume for most writ­ers, in in­ter­nal terms – the val­i­da­tion that this is worth do­ing, that there’s a there there. I like the vi­sion­ary/ecstatic el­e­ments of Clarke’s writ­ing, and feel a warmth about that as­so­ci­a­tion, but I think that’s post-facto ra­tio­nal­is­ing, which is no bad thing.”
