KEEPING THE HOUSE longlisted for Gordon Burn Prize 2022
Wednesday 29th June 2022
Congratulations to Tice Cin, who has added the Gordon Burn Prize longlist to a slew of other prize listings for her debut novel KEEPING THE HOUSE. The £5,000 Gordon Burn prize, which rewards the “boldest and most exciting” fiction and non-fiction, this year features a mixture of true crime, memoir, music and sport.
This year’s longlist was selected by chair of the judges, author Denise Mina, alongside sportswriter and columnist Jonathan Liew, broadcaster Stuart Maconie, artist Heather Phillipson and writer Chitra Ramaswamy.
Mina said: “What a joy it has been to read these diverse and wonderful books. Our longlist presented itself quite naturally. Each and every one of these books manages to entertain, enthral and challenge, recalling Gordon Burn’s own work and areas of interest.”
The winner, who will get the chance for a three-month retreat at Gordon Burn’s cottage in the Scottish Borders alongside the £5,000 prize, will be announced at Durham Book Festival on 13th October.
The prize is run in partnership by the Gordon Burn Trust, New Writing North, Faber & Faber and Durham Book Festival. It commemorates the Newcastle-born writer Gordon Burn, who died in 2009, and seeks to celebrate those who follow in his footsteps.
