Orange Prize 2010 Shortlist
Announced today, a pretty underwhelming Orange Prize Shortlist.
Click on the titles to see what the critics made of them:
Rosie Alison, The Very Thought of You (Alma Books)
Barbara Kingsolver, The Lacuna (Faber)
Attica Locke, Black Water Rising (Serpent’s Tail)
Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall (Fourth Estate)
Lorrie Moore, A Gate at the Stairs (Faber)
Monique Roffey, The White Woman on the Green Bicycle (Simon and Schuster)
Click HERE to read the reviews for all the longlisted books, including The Rehearsal by precocious talent Eleanor Catton, Sarah Water’s Booker-shortlisted The Little Stranger, and M.J. Hyand’s very well received This is How.
The winner will be announced on 9 June. Our money’s on Mantel to do the double.
