It’s award time in the book world and a couple of shortlists are worth a delve. The Wellcome Book Prize looks at books that illuminate the many ways that health touches our lives. This year’s shortlist ranges from the enthralling mysteries of the human heart to the darkly comic fiction of one woman’s desire to sleep away the hours and covers pressing themes including concepts of gender and experiences of mental illness. This years Women’s Prize for Fiction also has a strong list including Pat Barker’s The Silence of the Girls and My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite – a real favourite in the library.
