Thank you Peter Pereira for this. It has me laughing out loud each time. And yet -- is it that funny? Yes! It's so unexpected. "I want to thank everyone here - from the straightest person to the littlest queer."
And finally, "thank you very much for letting me join the ranks." If I ever win a big prize I want to do something this outlandish. And yet what shines through for me in this video is exuberance. Congratulations Rakesh Satyal. May your book, Blue Boy, sell like hot cakes -- like crazy pants -- like a song.
