Paddy Crewe and Lucy Caldwell longlisted for Walter Scott Prize
The longlist for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction features novels by Paddy Crewe and Lucy Caldwell. Paddy Crewe is longlisted for his debut novel My Name Is Yip (Transworld), a giddily imaginative picaresque steeped in the cinematic idiosyncrasies of the American frontier, and Lucy Caldwell is longlisted for These Days (Faber), a book set across the four devastating days of the bombing of Belfast in 1941.
The shortlist – which usually features six books — will be announced in April, and a winner announced in mid June at the Borders Book Festival in Melrose, Scotland.
