"What Was Lost" longlisted

Friend of BiNS Catherine O’Flynn’s novel “What Was Lost” has made it onto the longlists of two awards: the long-running Man Booker Prize, announced earlier this month and now also the Guardian’s First Book Award, announced today.

The Guardian prize rewards the best new writing from all genres and allows readers’ groups to play a part in deciding the result. This year the groups are based in Waterstone’s stores.
