The 2023 longlist practically bursts with new voices as nine out of the sixteen included works are from first-time authors. This year’s list even sees the return of two former Women’s Prize winners, Maggie O’Farrell and Barbara Kingsolver.

According to Good Housekeeping UK, Louise Minchin, this year’s chair of judges, stated that “This year’s longlist is a glorious celebration of the boundless imagination and creative ambition of women writers over the past year. Every one of these 16 books is excellent and original in its own individual way; they all offer fresh perspectives on history and humanity, exploring hard truths with empathy, sensitivity, directness, and sometimes infectious humor”.

These are the amazing books and authors included in this year’s longlist:

  • Black Butterflies by Priscilla Morris
  • Children of Paradise by Camilla Grudova
  • Cursed Bread by Sophie Mackintosh
  • Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver
  • Fire Rush by Jacqueline Crooks
  • Glory by NoViolet Bulawayo
  • Homesick by Jennifer Croft
  • I’m a Fan by Sheena Patel
  • Memphis by Tara M. Stringfellow
  • Pod by Laline Paull
  • Stone Blind by Natalie Haynes
  • The Bandit Queens by Parini Shroff
  • The Dog of the North by Elizabeth McKenzie
  • The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O’Farrell
  • Trespasses by Louise Kennedy
  • Wandering Souls by Cecile Pin

The judges now have the difficult task of whittling these sixteen books down to a shortlist of six novels, which will be announced in April. But until then, happy reading and happy quizzing!
