Hesperus Press Announces Its 'Uncover a Classic' Competition Winner

Elizabeth Madox Roberts (1881–1941)
Last May I mentioned the competition run by Hesperus Press for nominations for the re-publication of a classic novel. The winner has just been announced, and he is Michael Wynne, who is a writer based in Dublin and who nominated Elizabeth Madox Roberts's The Great Meadow.
The Great Meadow was originally published in 1930 and was shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. It's a historical novel set in Roberts's native Kentucky and will be published by Hesperus next month, on 31 October. There is more information below in the link to the press release.
