Today, they announced the shortlist for the Women’s Prize for Fiction. The winner will be announced on June 5.

  • Life After Life, by Kate Atkinson
  • May We Be Forgiven, by A.M. Homes
  • Flight Behavior, by Barbara Kingsolver
  • Bring Up the Bodies, by Hilary Mantel
  • Where’d You Go, Bernadette, by Maria Semple
  • NW, by Zadie Smith

Incidentally, I think this should be fun to follow: Simon Savidge is doing a series for We Love This Book: “The Women’s Prize: A Man’s Perspective” (find the initial post here). He’ll be reading through the shortlist and posting from his male perspective.
