Dr Martin Patrick M.A of London, today said that he was honoured to be nominated for the Polari Book Prize. Now that he has reached the final twelve candidates he is proud to be one of the few Black British men whose novel is being recognised, and he is working hard to present himself as a writer of his generation. His book LOVE BOTH WAYS is being called, 'One of the best gay love stories for over thirty years.' Janus Van Der Bos. COC Amsterdam.
Dan Wright said, "I'm a man with a wife and son, I think Love Both Ways is the most moving love story I've ever read. You don't have to be Black or gay to understand how Black British and European families form friendships in Britain. Love has no boundaries even between Caribbean and Italian fathers if their lives are united by their hearts, as it is in this novel about love and hate across racial lines."
