Well, at last, the genius that is Rosalind Belben has been recognised! Our Horses in Egypt has been shortlisted for "Britain's oldest literary award" the James Tait Black Memorial Prizes ("founded in 1919 by Janet Coats, the widow of publisher James Tait Black, to commemorate her husband's love of literature"). Yay!

The other novels on the shortlist are: The Devil's Footprints by John Burnside; The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid; A Far Country by Daniel Mason and Salvage by Gee Williams (published by Alcemi "a new quality fiction imprint from" small Welsh publisher Y Lolfa).

Come on Rosalind!
