Orange 小說大獎專為女性而設

ann9過了花甲之年,寫第一部小說,參加小說大獎,會有多少希望呢? 63歲的Gaynor Arnold給大家一個答案。去年,她已入圍BOOKER PRIZE ,今年,她又入圍 ORAGNGE PRIZE  ,前一次與世界知名的《魔鬼詩篇》作者Salman Rushdie拗手瓜,這次,是與美國諾獎的女黑人作家Toni Morrison較量。
她的參選小說名叫《藍衣少女》(Girl in a Blue Dress),曾被出版商退過多次稿,這次終於受文學界青睞,出人頭地了。
此外,另一位女作家Ann Weisgarber ,恁The Personal History of Rachel DuPree 爭奪新人獎之外,還入圍了小說大獎。這項ORANGE PRIZE 盛事,將於六月三號正式舉行頒獎。(圖為被提名兩項大獎的靚女作家)
