Desmond Elliott Prize 2021 Winner
It is our great pleasure to confirm The Manningtree Witches by A. K. Blakemore as the winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize 2021.
Set in 1643 amidst the Civil War, The Manningtree Witches tells a harrowing story of persecution of women on the fringes of the society by a self-styled Witchfinder General. Visceral, insidious and important, poet A. K. Blakemore’s thrilling debut novel balances its bleak themes with a lyrical, powerful prose that fleshes out those whom history has forgotten with empathy, colour and wit.
