The Bailey's Women's Fiction Prize




The longlist for the prize was announced late last night and it is an interesting list with a lot of debut authors included including Irish writers Audrey Magee and Eimer McBride. The Guardian article below focuses on the lack of British authors making the cut; only four of the twenty longlisted authors are British and the picture gallery below that gives some detail on the titles themselves. I have six of the twenty in my TBR pile so I hope to read and review them before the shortlist is announced in June. Also just look at the judges Mary Beard, Denise Mina and Caitlin Moran to name just three I would love to be part of their discussions, what fun.
