Canadian writer claims 'Lit Idol' title.

M2 BEST BOOKS-(C)2000-2004 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Canadian, Paul Cavanagh, has won the first Lit Idol contest at the London Book Fair (LBF).

The author won the prize for his book, 'Northwest Passage', which is about a man, struggling with the death of his wife, who goes in search of his daughter who has run away to find a man she believes is her real father. The prize is a deal with top literary agency Curtis Brown.

Cavanagh has been working on the book for two and a half years, and is now in a hurry to finish it and strike a publishing deal. He beat off 1,450 entrants and the four other finalists after a reading in front of the judges at the LBF on 15 March 2004, reports the Ottawa Citizen.
