Monday 15th August 2016
Congratulations to Jemma Wayne, whose fantastic second novel CHAINS OF SAND (Legend Press) has been shortlisted for the annual Not The Booker Prize run by the Guardian. Out of the longlist of 147 titles Jemma’s novel has made it to the final six. Jemma’s debut novel AFTER BEFORE (Legend Press) was longlisted for the Not The Booker in 2014.
CHAINS OF SAND tells the story of Israeli army veteran Udi who dreams of a new life in England and Londoner Daniel who wants for nothing but yearning for something more, looks to Israel for the answer.
Reviews will be released on the Guardian website each week and a panel of judges, made up of Guardian readers, will announce their winner in October.
Congratulations again to Jemma and all those shortlisted!
