Hello family,

Mark, not sure if you're aware of this but a woman from Christchurch has won the a woman from Christchurch has won the Man Booker Prize, one of the most prestigious awards in world literature. Eleanor was friends of friends at Canterbury University and, while she is currently doing better than I am, I put that down to my single-minded focus on winning the Nobel and not broadening my horizons to focus on lesser awards.

Anyway, I saw this letter from John Key praising her on her achievement on Facebook this morning. Seems legit.
