LAST KING OF THE CROSS takes home the 2018 Danger Award

September 4, 2018

John Ibrahim has won the inaugural Danger Prize at the BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival for his memoir Last King of the Cross.

“This is my first literary award and I am humbled,” Mr Ibrahim said. “I’ve done a lot of things in my life, but this is a new experience.”

Mark Morri, chair of the judging panel, said of Last King of the Cross, “The judges found the book lively, and also informative. It’s in the tradition of immigrant autobiography, but takes that in some interesting directions. It tells us a lot we didn’t know about how Sydney worked in recent decades.”

Congratulations, John, on this incredible achievement!
