Author D. W. Wilson and Once You Break a Knuckle

David Wilson is on a roll!

First he received the University of East Anglia's first MAN Booker scholarship and then this year became the youngest winner of the coveted BBC Short Story prize.

 He won for his story "The Dead Roads" which comes from his newly published debut collection, Once You Break a Knuckle. The book centres around some of the rough and tumble characters of his home town of Invermere, B.C. and it is a rollicking read written in a very distinctive voice.
