2017 longlist announced
The Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction is the UK’s most prestigious annual book award for fiction written by a woman.
Founded in 1996, the Prize was set up to celebrate excellence, originality and accessibility in writing by women throughout the world.
This year’s judges now have the unenviable task of whittling these sixteen titles down to just six shortlisted titles before finally choosing the winner which will be revealed on 7 June 2017.
