Orange Prize Long Listed, Announced
The Orange Prize is given to a woman author. That is judged to be the best full length work of fiction written in the English language. The Orange Prize is given in the U.K. It can not be a short story or translated from another language.
The nominations will be decided soon. But you can view the long list at the Orange prize site. There are a few American writers that have been nominated. I look forward to this every spring. I have not read any of these yet.
What are your thoughts of the nominee's Post me a comment. I am interested to see if any one has read them and did they deserve to be long listed.
