Orange Prize 2010

The Orange Prize shortlist for 2010 was announced this week. Here is the shortlist:

Rosie Alison The Very Thought of You

Barbara Kingsolver The Lacuna

Attica Locke Black Water Rising

Hilary Mantel Wolf Hall

Lorrie Moore A Gate at the Stairs

Monique Roffey The White Woman on the Green Bicycle

An eclectic mix of books, I have read The Lacuna and I loved it, its set in Mexico during the 30s and features the artist Frieda Kahlo and Leon Trotsky, the Russian revolutionary. I have also read Black Water Rising, which is like a literary John Grisham.
