Colm Tóibín and Edna O'Brien competing for the Frank O' Connor award

I know that this is old news, but I've managed just now to get into the internet after a few days holiday. Anyway, here's the shortlist for the Frank O' Connor award, the richest of its kind as far as short stories are concerned:

Gold Boy, Emerald Girl by Yiyun Li
Light Lifting by Alexander MacLeod
Saints and Sinners by Edna O'Brien
Death is Not an Option by Suzanne Rivecca
The Empty Family by Colm Tóibín
Marry or Burn by Valerie Trueblood
