Keith Ridgway shortlisted for James Tait Black Prize 2022
Keith Ridgway has been shortlisted for the James Tait Black Prize for Fiction 2022, which includes an absorbing blend of books offering fresh takes on themes such as the intricacies of relationships, cultural identity and journeys of self-discovery. In A Shock (Picador), a clutch of more or less loosely connected characters appear, disappear and reappear. They are all of them on the fringes of London life, often clinging on – to sanity or solvency or a story – by their fingertips.
The awards – presented by the University since 1919 – are the only major British book prizes judged by literature scholars and students. Presented by the University of Edinburgh since 1919, they are the only major British book prizes judged by literature scholars and students.
