Orange Prize longlist announced

Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, the Orange Prize for Fiction today announces the 2010 longlist.

“It was a tough judging process as there was a particularly strong range of books submitted from all over the world in this, the 15th year of the Orange Prize,” commented Daisy Goodwin, Chair of Judges, “but in the end we have chosen a muscular, original and pleasurable longlist that will appeal to all kinds of readers.”

The 2010 longlist features new and well-established writers, including seven first novels alongside previous Orange Prize and Orange Best of the Best winner, Andrea Levy, and Man Booker 2009 winner, Hilary Mantel.

The shortlist will be available on the 20th of April and the winner will be announced on the 9th of June.
