Celebrating the winners of the 2015 Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize winners: Emma Jane Unsworth

Every week until the beginning of September, we’re celebrating one of this year’s Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize winning authors.

This week we’re celebrating 2015 winner, Emma Jane Unsworth who won with her novel, Animals.

“A wise and very funny novel of two best friends, and the other companion in their lives – booze. Unsworth writes of this manic duo with a gritty, unsentimental realism overlaid with a sharp, intelligent style, and real empathy for her subjects. A novel that examines the values – and perils – of friendship and sisterhood.” Matt Bates, fiction buyer at WH Smith Travel

Keep an eye out for updates over the coming week and have a read of the first chapter here.
