In 2013 the Orange Prize was renamed The Women’s Prize for Fiction. The first winner (and only winner under that new name) was announced in June – – – A M Homes for her book May We Be Forgiven.
“Harry has spent a lifetime watching his younger brother, George – a taller, smarter and more successful high-flying TV executive – acquire a covetable wife, two kids and a beautiful home. But Harry, a historian and Nixon scholar, also knows George has a murderous temper, and when George loses control the result is an act so shocking that both brothers are hurled into entirely new lives, in which they both must seek absolution.” (from the The Women’s Prize for Fiction website)
In 2014 the Award will be known as the Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction.
Whatever the award name, May We Be Forgiven is now in the EBC English language collection.
