22nd March 2016|Literary Awards

Sunjeev Sahota’s Man Booker-shortlisted The Year of the Runaways has made it onto the shortlist for the International Dylan Thomas prize 2016.

The prize, named after the Welsh poet who died in 1953 aged 39, is awarded for the best work of English-language fiction by an author aged 39 or under. Author Sarah Hall said that the books on the shortlist “have perhaps only one thing in common - literary ambition and the breathtakingly successful execution of their visions”.

The winner of the prize will be announced on International Dylan Thomas Day,15th May, at a gala ceremony in Swansea University’s Great Hall.
