Congratulations to Keeping the House author Tice Cin, who is one of three authors to make the short shortlist of three for the Desmond Elliott Prize! The longlist was already an incredible bunch of book tips, as this is the prize for the best UK debut of last year. We were proud to have the equally brilliant Somebody Loves You by Mona Arshi on the longlist. (That is: two of the three UK debuts we published last year made the longlist.)

But today it’s all about Tice Cin and to her fellow shortlistees!

The trio are:

Iron Annie, Luke Cassidy (Bloomsbury)

Keeping the House, Tice Cin (And Other Stories)

Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies, Maddie Mortimer (Picador)
