Novelist Kate Mosse Co-Founder and Chair of the Women’s Prize for Fiction Board said, “For twenty years, the Prize has championed and celebrated outstanding fiction written by women from all over the world, and put passionate, ambitious, fearless, powerful, engaging, thought provoking, entertaining novels into the hands of readers. In 2005, we celebrated our first decade with a ‘Best of the Best’ campaign with Woman’s Hour. So as part of our twenty year celebrations, what better way to honour our second decade of winners than to put all ten winning novels back in the spotlight and introduce a new generation of readers to these exceptional works.”
