The Burgess Boys Longlisted for the Bailey's Women's Prize 2014

Elizabeth's The Burgess Boys has been longlisted for the UK's Bailey's Women's Prize 2014 (formerly the Orange Prize). 

Helen Fraser, Chair of Judges, says: “This is a fantastic selection of books of the highest quality – intensely readable, gripping, intelligent and surprising – that you would want to press on your friends, and the judges have been doing just that.”

The judges must now whittle these 20 books to six, before choosing an overall winner to be announced on 4th June 2014.
