Donna Tartt Heads Baileys Women's Prize For Fiction 2014 Shortlist

Posted at 9:16PM Monday 07 Apr 2014

Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch – either an astonishing masterpiece or tedious, overlong turkey of a novel depending on which critic you read – is favourite to win the UK's only annual book prize for fiction written by women.

The long-awaited novel was one of six shortlisted for the 2014 Baileys women's prize for fiction and will go up against a book it has already done battle with in one of America's most prestigious prizes, the National Book Critics Circle award.
