The shortlist is:
Richard Beard Guidelines for Measures to Cope with Disgraceful and Other Events
Jane Gardam The People on Privilege Hill
Erin Soros Surge
Adam Thorpe The Names
Clare Wigfall The Numbers
The stories are being read on Radio Four all this week, you can listen, or listen again, here, and the winning story and the story that runs up will be announced on 14 July on the Today programme, here.
The prizes are severely financially worthwhile … so hooray for the BBC, Prospect, the Arts Councils and the Book Trusts who’ve made it happen.
