The book world is currently abuzz with news of the Baileys Prize longlist, but I’m here to talk about another literary award for women writers — and that’s the Stella Prize, the shortlist for which was announced in Australia yesterday.
The shortlisted titles are:
- Poum and Alexandre by Catherine de Saint Phalle
- An Isolated Incident by Emily Maguire
- The Museum of Modern Love by Heather Rose
The $50,000 prize is for Australian women writers and only books, both fiction and non-fiction, published in 2016 were eligible. You can read the full announcement on the official website.
I plan on reviewing all the titles. Do keep coming back to this post as I will update the hyperlinks above as and when I review each title.
The winner will be announced on 18 April.
