Speaking of Love has been longlisted for Spread the Word’s Book to Talk About, which is wonderful news for the book, and for all the books on the list (there are 100 of them). The award will be announced in the UK’s Year of Reading (2008). The short list will appear in February – voted for by book groups and individuals – and the Book to Talk About will be announced on 6 March, which is World Book Day.
