The Women’s Prize for Fiction, formerly known as the Orange Prize for Fiction, returns for another year. Following Madeline Miller’s success in 2012, the longlist features both acclaimed and relatively unknown authors. With Hilary Mantel’s Booker Award winning novel, ‘Bring up the Bodies’, longlisted alongside books such as ‘Alif the Unseen’ and ‘The Red Book’, the competition is sure to be an unpredictable one. The shortlist of six will be announced on Tuesday 16th April, and the winner on Wednesday 5th June.
