Kathleen Winter Shortlisted for the Orange Prize
It was announced yesterday that Canadian author Kathleen Winter was one of six writers to make it to the 2011 shortlist of the Orange Prize, the UK’s only annual book award for fiction written by a woman. Her first novel, a finalist for the 2010 Scotiabank Giller prize, the Governor General's Literary Award, and the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize Annabel (Jonathan Cape) has reaped rave reviews here and abroad:
"Her lyrical voice and her crystalline landscape are enchanting"
— The New Yorker
Here's a great Shelf Unbound Twitter conversation with Kathleen Winter.
