    I would probably have gone into writing anyway, sneaking in through the back door, but much, much later. Winning the Observer award threw me through the reception window. it was an official recommendation saying, you´ve got a talent , use it.

    The reception window is the opposite of the back door, but he didn't just walk there, he was catapulted in there...

    en vez de colarse por la puerta trasera, el premio lo catapultó a través de la ventanilla de recepción

    (catapultar is not strictly literal but I am thinking of that expression 'catapultar a la fama', which I think suits the context
