Orange Flavoured

I'd be terribly derelict in my litblogging duties if I didn't let you in on the Orange Prize Shortlist (I'm a bit late as it is, she admits shamefacedly.)

And the nominations are:
  • The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
    Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel
    The Accidental by Ali Smith
    On Beauty
    by Zadie Smith
    Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living by Carrie Tiffany
    The Night Watch by Sarah Waters
You can read more about the titles at the Orange Prize website.

Let's see. I've read two of the titles. Own four of them.

And the Carrie Tiffany novel had slipped beneath my radar. She may well win if the current spell of good luck for writers with an Aussie connection still holds.

Anyway, place your bets! The award ceremony will be held June 6th.
