Dylan Thomas Prize shortlist unveiled

21st October 2011

The shortlist for the 2011 Dylan Thomas Prize has been announced, with three first-time novelists and this year's Orange Prize for Fiction winner among those in the running.

Tea Obreht, who claimed the Orange Prize for Fiction with her debut novel The Tiger's Wife, is joined on the shortlist by two fellow first-time novelists.

Yorkshire-based Annabel Pitcher has been included for her book My Sisters on the Mantelpiece, as has The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore by Benjamin Hale.

Canadian poet, blogger and literary critic, Jacob McArthur is in the running for the prize with Folk and Lucy Caldwell has been shortlisted for the second time with The Meeting Point, after her novel Where They Were Missed appeared on the list in 2006.

Professor Peter Stead, who chairs the prize, which is one of the world's highest paying awards for young writers, said this year's competition 'combines literary merit with readability which should arouse considerable interest amongst readers'.

'There really is something here to excite and challenge every kind of reader,' he added.
