She receives £15 000; by comparison, the Caine Prize – which Bulawayo won in 2011 – is worth £10 000. (The on-again, off-again NLNG Prize is worth considerably more at $100 000, but is only open to Nigerians; the Sunday Times Fiction Prize, at R75 000, is worth about £4 150 and is only open to South African citizens and residents.)
The books shortlisted for the prize were:
Bom Boy by Yewande Omotoso
Finding Soutbek by Karen Jennings
We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo.
