Announcing the Women’s Prize 2019 Longlist


We are delighted to reveal this year’s fantastic Women’s Prize for Fiction longlist

‘The discussion amongst the judges was passionate and there were some really tough choices to make’, commented Professor Kate Williams, Chair of Judges. ‘I am thrilled to share this longlist – sixteen incredible books by a diverse group of women, from the UK and countries across the world, all brilliant stories that sweep you into another world. Each of them have been a privilege to read, and they have taken us into places a million miles from each other, exploring the lives of women and men in so many different but utterly compelling ways.’
