Benjamin Myers’s Cuddy is on the RSL Ondaatje Prize shortlist

Benjamin Myers‘s Cuddy has been shortlisted for the RSL Ondaatje Prize, annual award of £10,000 for a distinguished work of fiction, non-fiction or poetry, evoking the spirit of a place.

This year marks the prize’s 20th anniversary. First awarded in 2004, the premise and broad remit of the Prize creates unique lists of outstanding works and authors that you would not usually find sitting side by side. Previous winners include Lea Ypi, Edmund de Waal and Hisham Matar.

From 194 entries to 14 longlisted titles, Cuddy is one of the final 6 shortlisted books chosen by judges Jan Carson, Xialou Guo, and Francis Spufford.
