We are delighted to announce that three of our authors have been longlisted for the Barry Ronge Sunday Times Fiction Prize in South Africa.
RECIPES FOR LOVE AND MURDER: A TANNIE MARIA MYSTERY by Sally Andrew, GREEN LION by Henrietta Rose-Innes (both published by Umuzi) and THE FETCH by Finuala Dowling (published by Kwela) are on the longlist for The Sunday Times Barry Ronge Fiction Prize, formerly the Sunday Times Fiction Prize. Now in its sixteenth year, this prize is awarded annually to a novel that is of ‘rare imagination and style, evocative, textured and a tale so compelling as to become an enduring landmark of contemporary fiction.’
Previous Blake Friedmann winners of these prizes include Ivan Vladislavić (who has won both the fiction and non-fiction prizes for PORTRAIT WITH KEYS and THE RESTLESS SUPERMARKET), Marlene van Niekerk for AGAAT (translated by Michiel Heyns), Zakes Mda (HEART OF REDNESS) and Hugh Lewin for STONES AGAINST THE MIRROR.
The shortlist will be announced at the Franschhoek Literary Festival in May. For more information on the prize, click here.
