dayswithoutendThe overall winner of the Costa Book Award has been announced as Days Without end by Sebastian Barry. He beat Keggie Carew with her biography Dadland and Alice Oswald with her poetry collection Falling Awake.

The judges commented on Barry's book.
“A miracle of a book – both epic and intimate – that manages to create spaces for love and safety in the noise and chaos of history.”

Sebastian Barry was born in Dublin in 1955. His novels include A Long Long Way (2005), The Secret Scripture (2008), winner of the Costa Book of the Year, The Temporary Gentleman (2014) and Days Without End (2016). It is the first time a novelist has won the Costa Book Award twice.
