2016 Baileys Women’s Prize Winner…

the glorious heresies

The winner of the 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize for fiction goes to The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney! Many congratulations to Lisa McInerney! Neither Book Worm nor I predicted the winner (we did much better predicting the Man Booker last year). I haven’t read this book but I look forward to doing so in the near future.

The Glorious Heresies is Lisa McInerney’s debut novel. She is from Galway, Ireland and was the author of the award-winning (now defunct) blog Arse End of Ireland. You can read more about her and her work on her website. The Irish Times called her ‘arguably the most talented writer at work in Ireland today’.

You can read Book Worm’s review of the winning book here: The Glorious Heresies.

Have you read the book? What did you think? Did it deserve to take home the prize? Will you be reading it?

    I really enjoyed this one but it was never on my radar as a winner probably because it was such a fun amusing read. Congratulations to Lisa McInerney.

    I always want to read all the shortlist titles, and if I’m being honest I probably won’t get around to them all, but Book Worm’s review made me especially want to read this one—now I’ll really have to.
