The Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction 2016 long list was announced this morning and no better day for it that International Women’s Day!
A massive congratulations to Lisa McInerney and Anne Enright who were included for The Glorious Heresies and The Green Road respectively.
I’m currently slap bang in the middle of The Glorious Heresies and will be reviewing it later in the month during my New Voices Week. I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa during the summer at an event promoting The Long Gaze Back anthology where she read her fantastic short story, Berghain from that collection.

Good luck to Lisa and Anne for the next round!
Have any of your read The Green Road or The Glorious Heresies? Were any of your favourites included in the long list? I did have my fingers crossed for Tender by Belinda McKeon which was my favourite book of last year.
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
