Winner

I hope Annabel Lyon makes the short list, although I admit not to having read her new novel. How can the panel read it when it's not even available? The process is a mystery to me.
I liked her first novel a lot and dare say she writes about subjects not usually within the realm of female novelists, although in the end, it was: a historic novel about relationships between the great Alexander and his teacher, but exquisitely detailed and researched.
