I am sure this will not be real news to many of those who follow this blog, but on Monday 11 July in the evening, the winner of the 2011 Caine Prize for African Writing was announced.  She is NoViolet Bulawayo, and her short story is “Hitting Budapest”.  Congratulations to the winner!

And for those who still haven’t read the shortlisted stories, they are available on the Caine Prize website.

  1. Ah, I usually go to the readings of the shortlisted writers at the Southbank Centre, but I seem to have missed it this year. That’s a shame. I’ll have to get hold of the book, to read all the stories.
