We are absolutely delighted to say that Matt has won a highly prestigious Audie Award for Humour for his narration of Carpet Diem: Or…How to Save the World by Accident.
Regarded as the Oscars of the audiobook industry, the Audies are presented annually in the US by the Audio Publishers Association and celebrate excellence in Audiobook narration and production. Out of over 50,000 titles produced in the States they are whittled down into 29 categories. Matthew Lloyd Davies, having been nominated in the Non-Fiction category last year; this year he admirably surpassed that achievement.
Written by Justin Lee Anderson, it tells the story of Simon Debovar, 15 years after losing most of his family to a devastating pudding-related tragedy, settled into a self-imposed exile from the stinking selfish morass of humanity. Content in his daily highlights of hazelnut coffee, long baths and the occasional jar of olives, his life is completely upended by the discovery that his ornate living room carpet is a deciding factor in a bet between God and the Devil. And when mysteriously well-timed carpet thieves deprive him of his divine floor-covering he has to leave his hermitage behind for a world of angels, demons, witches and immortals.
