James Tait Black winners announced
28.08.12 | Katie Allen
The James Tait Black Prizes have announced they are to stage a new “Best of the James Tait Black" fiction award, choosing from a list of all previous winners.
The announcement came as Padgett Powell and Fiona MacCarthy triumphed at this year’s awards. Powell took the fiction prize for his novel You and I (Serpent's Tail), while MacCarthy won the biography prize for her book on Edward Burne-Jones, The Last Pre-Raphaelite (Faber).
The winners of the £10,000 prizes were announced this weekend at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. This year, the awards have been extended to include a new category for drama, to be announced in August 2013.
A shortlist of authors for the Best of the James Tait Black prize, drawn from all the fiction winners since the award began in 1919, will be announced in the autumn. Writers A D Miller and Ali Smith are among past winners of the prize.
