Matthew Dooley Shortlisted for Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction 2020

Matthew Dooley's Flake, published by Cape, is the first graphic novel to make the final six in the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction's 20-year history. It tells the story of two rival ice-cream men living in the 1980s: Howard, who is meek and happiest hiding in his van doing the crossword; and Tony Augustus – Howard’s half-brother– who is intent on building an empire across the region. 

This year's winner will be announced on 24th June and awarded the traditional jeroboam of Bollinger Special Cuvée, a case of Bollinger La Grande Année, the complete set of the Everyman’s Library P G Wodehouse collection and a pig to name after the winning novel.
