The Women's Prize for Fiction 2021 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm Piranesi by Susanna Clarke as the winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction 2021.

A scintillating feast of imaginative storytelling resounding in a richly evoked gothic atmosphere, the second novel from the author of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell revolves around a darkly mysterious residence and the unforgettable individual who lives there.

 

‘With her first novel in seventeen years, Susanna Clarke has given us a truly original, unexpected flight of fancy which melds genres and challenges preconceptions about what books should be.’

BernaRdine Evaristo, Chair of Judges
