The Other Times of Caroline Tangent by Ivan D. Wainewright

If you could travel back in time to see any concert, who would you go to see?  Caroline Tangent’s husband, Jon has invented a time machine so they can visit iconic gigs in history: Woodstock ’69, David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, Edith Piaf in 1930’s Paris – an inexhaustible bucket-list. Until, on a trip, one of them does something unthinkable which will change both their lives forever.  

Winner of the novel category, this original time travel narrative was “likeable, fun and engaging” said the judges, a novel that was “completely page turning”, while the “marketing [was] thorough and probing”.

The author receives his award at the London Book Fair from BookBrunch chair David Roche
