Orange Broadband Prize Shortlist

The Orange Broadband Prize has whittled its longlist down to a mere half-dozen names:

Half of a Yellow Sun, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Arlington Park, Rachel Cusk
The Inheritance of Loss, Kiran Desai
A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers, Xiaolu Guo
The Observations, Jane Harris
Digging to America by Anne Tyler

“The 2007 Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction shortlist is incredibly exciting,” commented Muriel Gray, Chair of judges. “It represents six beautifully crafted pieces of work that are as accessible as they are fascinating. That this outstanding writing should come from such diverse sources that includes five different nationalities, a world famous author, as well as a first-time novelist, is doubly thrilling.” The overall winner will be announced on June 6.
