Orange Shortlist

The Orange shortlist has been announced, with debut novelists making up half of the six:

Emma Donoghue - Room
Kathleen Winter - Annabel
Emma Henderson - Grace Williams Says it Loud
Aminatta Forna - The Memory of Love
Téa Obreht - The Tiger's Wife
Nicole Krauss - Great House

I have read none of them. I read Krauss's The History of Love, and that was a favourite for a while. Emma Donoghue's Room has never appealed to me, largely because I feel I already know the story too well because of the glut of coverage it has had. It will be interesting to see who wins.
