Baileys Announces 2017 Women’s Prize for Fiction Shortlist

This week, Tessa Ross, 2017 Chair of Judges revealed the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction shortlist. The shortlist includes one previous winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction and one novelist making their debut this year.

Tessa said, on the Women’s Prize for Fiction website:

“It has been a great privilege to Chair the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction in a year which has proved exceptional for writing of both quality and originality. It was therefore quite a challenge to whittle this fantastic long list of 16 books down to only six… These were the six novels that stayed with all of us well beyond the final page.”




Here’s the shortlist announced this week:

  • Stay With Me by Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀̀
  • The Power  Naomi Alderman
  • The Dark Circle by Linda Grant
  • The Sport of Kings by C.E. Morgan
  • First Love by Gwendoline Riley
  • Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien

The lucky winner will be announced in June… Follow @BaileysPrize to keep in the loop, or check back here in June for further news!
