Will Cohu and C.K. Stead nominated for short story award

8th March 2010

The shortlist has been confirmed for The Sunday Times/EFG Private Bank Short Story Award.

Among the six writers competing for the GBP 25,000 prize are Will Cohu for 'Nothing but Grass', Joe Dunthorne with his 'Critical Responses to My Last Relationship' and Petina Gappah for 'An Elegy for Easterly'.

Adam Marek is in the running with 'Fewer Things', while C.K. Stead and David Vann were nominated for 'Last Season's Man' and 'It's Not Yours' respectively.

The judges for the award, which include Booker prize-winning novelist A.S. Byatt, bestselling writer Nick Hornby and playwright and author Hanif Kureishi, had to choose from a longlist of 20 short stories. The winner will be announced on March 26th.

Byatt commented: 'It was quite a task for us to make the final selection from such a huge entry but that choice is a testament to the liveliness and new inventiveness of the form.'

Last year, award-winning poet Kate Clanchy won the GBP 15,000 BBC National Short Story Award for 'The Not-Dead and The Saved'.
