So, I made the shortlist! And what wonderful company I have there - Yiyun Li, Elizabeth McCracken, Paula Morris, Scott O'Connor, Madeleine Thien ... I really am honoured to be included amongst such names, and I can't wait to head to London in April and hear all our stories being read. Until then, though, all the shortlisted stories can be read here, on the Sunday Times website. Please do take a look!
