Three debut novels on Women’s Prize Shortlist


Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction Shortlist, 2014

Three debut novelists – Hannah Kent, Audrey Magee and Eimear McBride – have found themselves side-by-side with industry veterans Donna Tartt, Jhumpa Lahiri and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on the 2014 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction shortlist.  Whittled down from an impressive list of 20, the shortlist includes six novels:

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

A Girl Is A Half-Formed Thing by Eimear McBride

The Undertaking Audrey Magee

Favorites Margaret Atwood, Eleanor Catton and Elizabeth Gilbert didn’t make the cut.
