Titles submitted to the Governor General's Literary Awards Submission information for 2014 Home | Precedent | Digital and brand design – London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Perth Congratulations to Sofie Laguna, winner of the 2015 Miles Franklin Award - Allen & Unwin - Australia Allen & Unwin are absolutely thrilled to announce that Sofie Laguna has won Australia's most prestigious literary prize - the 2015 Miles Franklin Literary Award for her mesmerising novel The Eye of the Sheep. Commenting on behalf of the judging panel, State Library of New South Wales Mitchell Librarian, Richard Neville, commented that 'the power of this finely crafted novel lies in its raw, high-energy, coruscating language which is the world of young Jimmy Flick, who sees everything. But his manic x-ray perceptions don't correspond with the way others see his world. His older brother understands him some of the time, and his mother almost all of the time, but other people, including his violent father, just see him as difficult. The Miles Franklin Award is worth $60,000 and is presented each year to a novel which 'presents Australian life in any of its phases'. Congratulations Sofie!
