A. M. Homes Wins Women’s Prize for Fiction

A. M. Homes has won the Women’s Prize for Fiction this year for her novel, May We Be Forgiven.

The prize, formerly known as the OrangePrize for Fiction, will be renamed the “Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction” next year. Chair Kate Mosse explained the new sponsorship deal in the release:

We were delighted by the range of interest – and enjoyed meeting brands in various sectors – but in the end, the Women’s Prize for Fiction Board felt Baileys was the ideal choice as our new partners. We were impressed not only by the scale of their ambition, but also their passion for celebrating outstanding fiction by women and willingness to help in bringing the prize to ever wider audiences.
