This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The 7th winner is Mary Watson from South Africa for Jungfrau . Chairman of the Judges, Dr Nana Wilson - Tagoe said of Jungfrau , It is a powerfully written narrative that works skillfully through a child s imagination to suggest a world of insights about familial and social relationships in the new South Africa. It is superbly written and does what a short story should do, by leaving spaces around its narrative in which readers can enter again and again . This story along with the other shortlisted stories and work from the Caine prize writers workshop are all collected in this volume. About the Caine Prize: Known as the African Booker , the Caine Prize for African Writing is a spring board for some of the best talent in African writing.
