THE FOLIO PRIZE, sponsored by The Folio Society, has today revealed the 80 books nominated by the Folio Prize Academy for consideration by this year’s Folio Prize judges. These are the 80 works of fiction published in the UK in 2014 that, in the eyes of the 235 writers and critics who constitute the Academy, are the best of the year.
The Folio Prize Academy’s role in selecting these 80 books is integral to the prize’s innovative peer review process. As an international body of writers and critics immersed in the world of books, the Academy is uniquely positioned to identify the most outstanding writing of our time.
The Folio Prize recognises and celebrates the best English language fiction from around the world, published in the United Kingdom in any given year regardless of form, genre or the author’s country of origin. Today’s announcement of the list of 80 nominations from The Folio Prize Academy shines a light on the very best storytelling published in the UK in 2014.
