I'm delighted that my short story collection Nude (Salt, 2009) is on the longlist for the Edge Hill Prize.
The Edge Hill Short Story Prize, now in its third year, is the UK's only literary award that recognises a published collection of short stories, and this year they have announced a longlist of 18 titles, which will be whittled down to a shortlist. The shortlist of 5 will be announced on the 8th of May.
