Penny Vincenzi, Chair of the Judges, comments, “This list of books, wide-ranging in both its scope and genre – tragedy, comedy and mystery are all there! – embodies the vibrant nature of new writing published in this country today. This is a list that truly sparkles – something, I am sure, Desmond Elliott would very much approve of.”
Vincenzi is joined on the judging panel by Tatler Editor, Geordie Greig and author and journalist Cristina Odone.
