The Orange Prize Shortlist was announced yesterday. The shortlist is:
The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel
The Accidental by Ali Smith
On Beauty by Zadie Smith
Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living by Carrie Tiffany
The Night Watch by Sarah Waters
My fingers are crossed for On Beauty - it was a GOOD book. Carrie Tiffany's title is great though - makes me want to read it.
