The Times described Selma Dabbagh’s debut, Out of It, as “A punchy first novel … beautifully observed … the plot races and the voices are strong.”
Peter Salmon’s first novel, The Coffee Story, was chosen by Toby Litt as his book of the year in the New Statesman.
Ros Barber’s The Marlowe Papers is the explosive fictional autobiography of Christopher Marlowe in blank verse.
Suzanne Joinson won the New Writing Ventures Award in 2007. A Lady Cyclist’s Guide to Kashgar is her debut novel.
Sophie Coulombeau won Route’s Next Great Novelist Award 2012 with Rites.
