The Women's prize for fiction shortlist announced

The Women's Prize for fiction (ex-Orange) shortlist has been announced today. Hilary Mantel with "Bring Up the Bodies" could be heading for a hat-trick after winning the Booker and the Costa awards, but according to the experts the prize could very well end up in the hands of A.M. Homes for "May We Be Forgiven". The winner will be announced on the 5th of June. Here's the shortlist:

Kate Atkinson - Life After Life  
A.M Homes - May We Be Forgiven         

Barbara Kingsolver - Flight Behaviour    

Hilary Mantel - Bring Up the Bodies        

Maria Semple - Where’d You Go, Bernadette         

Zadie Smith - NW
