JEF Books announces 2023 Winner of the Kenneth Patchen Award Winner for the Innovative Novel!

The 2023 winner of the Kenneth Patchen Award for the Innovative Novel is Lew Collins, of Cannes, France, for his novel Out of Competition.

Lew Collins has written three novels and one work of non-fiction and made many films, living and working in several places around the world. His first novel Uncorrected Proof (2008 ElephantEars Press) is a postmodern satire of writing and publishing. An award-winning filmmaker, he has written, directed and produced films in Asia and Australia. Lew Collins lives and writes in France.

About the novel:

"Demonstrators protest for democracy at the Rennes-Sur-Mer annual film festival, kidnapping a Hollywood producer while a Russian impresario’s shark falls from a helicopter out in the bay, and the festival’s deputy usurps his boss’s position. Chaos headlines a year to forget or the one to remember. People who should win don’t. Those who shouldn’t do. Nobody knows anything, everyone off the air, out to lunch, or simply Out of Competition."
