The Stray American is longlisted for Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize 2015

May 15, 2015

We’re delighted that Wendy Brandmark’s new novel The Stray American is longlisted for the 2015 Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize.

Bernadette Jansen op de Haar, publisher, commented: ‘It is wonderful to see The Stray American in such illustrious company and a very well deserved accolade for Wendy Brandmark.’

‘Brandmark’s prose and taut plotting draw the reader in… The Stray American is both social satire and a subtle parody of coming-of-age stories.’ – Kaite Welsh in the Literary Review

You can read the first chapter of the book from this page.
