Atkinson's Life After Life scooped the Costa Novel Award. The judges described Atkinson's latest novel – which also won the writer UK Author of the Year at the 2013 Specsavers National Book Awards in December - as "astonishing", saying: "This book does everything you could ask for in a work of fiction and so much more."
