(McEWAN, Ian). HADDON, Mark
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time Promotional Card
London, David Fickling, 2003. A promotional postcard for Haddon's Whitbread Award winning book, which was released simultaneously in an edition for adults by Jonathan Cape and for children by David Fickling. Fickling issued a set of promotional postcards with Volkswagens of varying colors (of significance to the protagonist): three of the five cards featured author quotes; one had a quote from the publisher; one had a quote from the book. McEwan's card reads: "A superb achievement...a wise and bleakly funny writer with rare gifts of empathy." The other two authors quoted in this set of five are Arthur Golden and Oliver Sacks. In addition to the Whitbread, the book won the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. Fine. [#029978] $70
