Lucy Hughes-Hallett’s first novel, Peculiar Ground, will be published on May 18th. Her previous book, The Pike (2013), a biography of Gabriele D’Annunzio, won all three of this country’s most prestigious non-fiction prizes: the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Duff Cooper Prize, and the Costa Biography of the Year Award.  She is a widely respected critic and reviewer, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

Commenting on the Award, Lucy said “I’m looking forward to reading the work of the next generation of great British and Irish writers, and it’s exciting to be able to give them a boost early in their careers.”
