The Water Clock did very well in the poll for Cambridgeshire Book of the Decade - but not as well as The Cambridge Curry Club by Saumya Balsari, which turned out to be an excellent winner. But thanks toall who voted so that we gave the field a run for its money. Saumya - in an excellent speech on the night - pointed out that the real heroes are the librarians who make sure all our books are so well read. Our libraries are a fantastic resource, and part of a great British tradition, which will be verylucky indeed to survive the current tightening of the government finances. It may only be in retrospect we realise just how important they are to our literary lives.
