Rose Tremain: The Art Of Not Winning Literary Prizes

Posted at 6:40PM Thursday 08 Nov 2012

Over a lifetime in writing, I've had numerous opportunities to perfect the art of not winning. I've been shortlisted for but not won the Man Booker prize, the Whitbread book of the year, the Costa novel prize, the Orange prize (won at the second attempt in 2007) the Frank O'Connor short story award, the Impac award, the Galaxy "Book of the Year" award and the Radio 3 short story award.
