The 2017 Goldsmiths Prize, worth £10,000, has been won by Nicola Barker for her novel H(a)ppy. The book is Barker’s eleventh novel. The purpose of the prize, established by Goldsmiths, University of London in 2013, is to celebrate the qualities of creative daring associated with the University with ‘a book that is deemed genuinely novel and which embodies the spirit of invention that characterises the genre at its best.’ Naomi Wood, Lecturer in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths, commented, ‘Nicola Barker’s H(a)ppy is a structural marvel to hold in the mind and in the hands. Line by line, colour by colour, this dystopic utopia is an ingenious closed loop of mass surveillance, technology, and personality-modifying psychopharmaceuticals. H(a)ppy is a fabulous demonstration of what the Goldsmiths Prize champions: innovation of form that only ever enriches the story. In Barker’s 3D-sculpture of a novel, H(a)ppy makes the case for the novel as a physical form and an object of art.’
