More prize news with the announcement this morning of the shortlist for the Women's Prize for Fiction (formerly the Orange Prize):
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
May We be Forgiven by A.M. Homes
Flight Behaviour by Barbara Kingsolver
Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
NW by Zadie Smith
The winner will be announced on Wednesday, 5th. June.
(Of those shortlisted, I've read only the Kate Atkinson so far, and to my mind it certainly deserves its place on the list.)
Meanwhile, the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction has gone to The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson, but I'm delighted to see that one of two other finalists is Eowyn Ivey's The Snow Child - post on it here.
