Katherine Rundell and Maddie Mortimer shortlisted for Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year
The 2022 Sunday Times Charlotte Aitken Young Writer of the Year Award shortlist has been revealed, featuring Katherine Rundell and Maddie Mortimer among others. Katherine Rundell is nominated for her Baillie Gifford Prize-winning Super-Infinite (Faber & Faber), described as a "complex portrait of England’s greatest love poet, John Donne", while Maddie Mortimer features for her Desmond Elliott Prize-winning Maps of our Spectacular Bodies (Picador), which judges described as "boldly inventive in style".
The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year award celebrates fiction, non-fiction and poetry by British or Irish authors aged 35 or under. Judges shortlisted four writers, bucking the trend of the previous two years in which five were nominated. Over the coming weeks, Granta will publish extracts from all four titles on granta.com.
