My Name is Yip longlisted for Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award
Paddy Crewe has been longlisted for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award for his debut novel My Name is Yip, a giddily imaginative picaresque steeped in the cinematic idiosyncrasies of the American frontier.
The shortlist will be announced on Monday, 20th March, whilst the winner will be announced on Wednesday, 24th May at the National Liberal Club.
Inaugurated in 1954, the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award is now in its 69th year, making it the longest-running UK prize for debut fiction and – except for the James Tait Black and the Hawthornden – the oldest literary prize in Britain.
