Jenny Offill shortlisted for the Women’s Prize

Jenny Offill‘s novel WEATHER is “A gorgeous, funny, deadly serious and warmly revelatory mesh of perfect paragraphs”, and has been shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction! The aim of the prize is “always to celebrate women’s creative achievements and international writing, whilst also stimulating debate about gender and writing, gender and reading, and how the publishing and reviewing business works.”

On the 21st April 2020, the longlist of sixteen novels was narrowed down to six shortlisted novels, including Offill’s “miracle of a novel”.

The winner of the prize will be announced on the 9th September 2020, and they will receive £30,000, and a limited edition bronze figurine called the ‘Bessie’.
