Lose yourself in the pages…
Stylist have teamed up with John Murray Press in order to offer readers the chance to win a copy of this year’s nominee for the Women’s Prize for Fiction: Dominicana.
Fifteen-year-old Ana Canción never dreamed of moving to America, the way the girls she grew up with in the Dominican countryside did. But when Juan Ruiz proposes and promises to take her to New York City, she must say yes. It doesn’t matter that he is twice her age, that there is no love between them. Their marriage is an opportunity for her entire close-knit family to eventually immigrate.
In bright, musical prose that reflects the energy of New York City, Dominicana by Angie Cruz is a vital portrait of the immigrant experience and the timeless coming-of-age story of a young woman finding her voice in the world.
Shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2020, it was described by judge Scarlett Curtis as ‘an exquisite and wonderful novel… it’s a story so many of us should know but maybe haven’t heard in full before.’
The Women’s Prize for Fiction is the UK’s most prestigious annual book award celebrating and honouring women’s fiction. The winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction will be announced on 9th September 2020.
