Best of the James Tait Black Prize launched

29th August 2012

Following the announcement of this year's James Tait Black Memorial Prize winners, the University of Edinburgh has launched the Best of the James Tait Black Prize; a special award that will recognise the finest fiction category winners from the past 93 years.

The list of past winners of the fiction award is a who's who of the writing world, with contemporary authors including Salman Rushdie, Zadie Smith and Ian McEwan sitting alongside literary giants ranging from D.H. Lawrence and E.M. Forster to Graham Greene and J. B. Priestley.

The special award is being presented to celebrate 250 years of English literature at the university and will be judged by a distinguished panel including celebrity alumni and established writers.

In total, 97 writers will be in contention to win the award, including the latest recipient, American novelist Padgett Powell, who triumphed with his latest work, You & I.

The contenders will be whittled down to a shortlist of around six titles in the autumn, with the overall winner announced in December.
