Plymouth-born Jamie Edgecome, a fiction author mainly focusing on the Far East (predominately Japan), was the recipient of the inaugural Manchester Metropolitan University Novella Award in 2014 for The Art of Kozu. Spanning epic proportions as it moves between countries, continents and time periods, The Art of Kozu is a meticulously detailed and well-researched story.
