Riddley Walker - Gollancz edition (detail)

Trouble Puppet Theatre's production of Riddley Walker took home three awards at the B. Iden Payne ceremony on 29 October.

Author Anna Lawrence Pietroni explores "Riddleyspeak", which is at once familiar and strange: we have to slow our reading right down if we are to give ourselves any chance of understanding it in full. Riddley is ‘walking his riddels’ on paper and we have to read at a similarly steady pace, stopping from time to time to pick up a stone on the road or taking a moment to catch our breath.
