Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize 2021 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm The Accidental Collector by Guy Kennaway as the winner of the 2021 Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction.

Entwining the paths of an art dealer of global renown and a penniless Somerset hippie with more than a few tricks up his sleeve, The Accidental Collector offers a riotous ride in the world of art, fakery, fame and mistaken identities.

 

The Accidental Collector is an outrageous send up of the contemporary art world. It’s perceptive, hugely entertaining and full of surprises: it proved the perfect lockdown read. The shortlist in our 21st year for the prize was a vintage one, but [this] book was the one that continually made us laugh.’
