Well, my plan to read the longlist of this year’s Republic of Consciousness Prize for Small Presses didn’t exactly work out. I am going to keep following the prize, though, so here is the shortlist, which was announced last night:
- Attrib. and other stories by Eley Williams (Influx Press).
- Blue Self-Portrait by Noémi Lefevbre, tr. Sophie Lewis (Les Fugitives).
- Darker with the Lights On by David Hayden (Little Island Press).
- Die, My Love by Ariana Harwicz, tr. Sarah Moses & Carolina Orloff (Charco Press).
- Gaudy Bauble by Isabel Waidner (Dostoyevsky Wannabe).
- We that are young by Preti Taneja (Galley Beggar).
From what I’ve heard of the books, that is a very strong shortlist; certainly it’s full of books I want to read. Congratulations to all the authors and publishers!
