Wednesday 20th April 2022
The prize accolades keep stacking up for KEEPING THE HOUSE, as it has been shortlisted for the 2022 Jhalak Prize.
The Jhalak Prize is an annual literary award for British or British-resident writers of colour; it was established in 2016. A sister award for children’s and YA books was announced and kicked off in 2021. Six books are selected for each prize and this year the lists span biography, graphic memoir, narrative fiction, poetry, essays and picture books.
Commenting on the 2022 shortlists, prize director Sunny Singh said: “Once again, Jhalak Prize shortlists are testaments to the extraordinary range and quality of work being produced by writers of colour in contemporary Britain.
“I am particularly struck by the bold experiments in form and genre, courageous explorations of themes and ideas and the incredible variety of creative practice demonstrated by our shortlistees. Our 2022 shortlists are made up of books to be read and re-read, and remembered and cherished far into the future.”
