Anne Enright shortlisted for Orange Prize
UEA Creative Writing alumna Anne Enright has been shortlisted for this year’s Orange Prize for Fiction for her fifth novel ‘The Forgotten Waltz’, which was published by Jonathan Cape last year. Anne (pictured) graduated from the Creative Writing MA in 1987 and published her first collection of stories, ‘The Portable Virgin’, in 1991. She has since published one other collection of stories, a work of non-fiction - ‘Making Babies’ - and four other novels, most recently ‘The Gathering’, which was the Irish Novel of the Year and won the Irish Fiction Award and the 2007 Man Booker Prize. The Orange Prize for Fiction is worth £30,000 to the winner, who will be announced on 30th May.
