Shortlist named by Orange Prize youth panel

30th April 2010

The Orange Prize youth panel has revealed its six-strong shortlist of authors vying to be named the best of the award's 14 past winners.

Organised as part of the Orange Prize for Fiction's 15th anniversary celebrations, the competition tasked a panel of six teenagers to identify the most impressive books from the prize's roll-call of winners.

A Spell of Winter by Helen Dunmore, Anne Michaels' Fugitive Pieces and When I Lived in Modern Times by Linda Grant are among the novels nominated for the honour.

The remaining titles are Andrea Levy's Small Island, On Beauty by Zadie Smith and Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie's Half of a Yellow Sun.

Kate Mosse, co-founder of the all-female Orange Prize, commented: 'The panel members were engaging, enthusiastic, interested in the quality of writing, the subject matter and how well the author delivers what she set out to do.'

Last week, the shortlist for the GBP 30,000 Orange Prize for Fiction was revealed, featuring nominations for Man Booker-winning Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, Lorrie Moore's A Gate at the Stairs and The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver.
