2006 ORANGE PRIZE for FICTION Shortlist

WHAT a strong line-up! Zadie Smith and Ali Smith face stiff competition from the likes of American Nicole Krauss, Hilary Mantel and Sarah Waters for the 2006 Orange Prize for Fiction. And there is a new lass on the block: West Yorkshire-born Australian Carrie Tiffany. The shortlist, though a tad predictable (and I mean this in a nice way), is one of the strongest in years and is both commercial and literary. Here is the shortlist:

The History of Love / Nicole Krauss (Viking)
Beyond Black / Hilary Mantel (HarperPerennial)
The Accidental / Ali Smith (Hamish Hamilton)
On Beauty / Zadie Smith (Hamish Hamilton)
Everyman’s Rules for Scientific Living / Carrie Tiffany (Picador)
The Night Watch / Sarah Waters (Virago)

The winner will be announced on June 6, 2006
