Noreen Masud and Yan Ge longlisted for Jhalak Prize 2024

Noreen Masud and Yan Ge are among the writers longlisted for this year’s Jhalak Prize. Noreen Masud is longlisted for her book A Flat Place (Hamish Hamilton), a memoir that weaves reflections on Britain’s flatlands with poetry, history and insightful meditation on loss, identity and trauma, and Yan Ge for her English language debut, Elsewhere (Faber), which delves into themes of isolation through nine stories spanning from contemporary to ancient times, from China to Dublin to London and Stockholm, depicting strange and beguiling stories of dispossession, longing, and the diasporic experience.

The two Jhalak Prize awards celebrate writing by British/British resident BAME writers and annually award £1,000 to the winners. The shortlist for both awards will be announced on 18th April, with the winners revealed on 30th May.
