Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction Longlist

Linda forwarded me the 2007 nominee list for the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction. Orange is a British communications company and their prestigious prize for fiction is awarded to "the woman who, in the opinion of the judges, has written the best, eligible full-length novel in English." Past winners and nominees have included Zade Smith, Margaret Atwood, Anne Tyler, Ann Patchett, Sarah Waters, Carol Shields, etc. However, there are also many authors unfamiliar to American readers. As Linda says, this list "is always fun for me...finding totally new women authors to explore, especially ones from a different cultural tradition!"

Visit to find out which books and authors are on the list this year and read more about them.
