Amitav Ghosh in long-list for 2013 Warwick Prize

Bengali author Amitav Ghosh is among 12 authors, academics and poets vying for the 2012 Warwick Prize for Writing.

The biennial prize, established by the University of Warwick and first awarded in 2009, is one of a handful of recognized awards that rewards excellence in the English language in any genre or form.

Ghosh was long-listed for "River of Smoke", the second part of his Ibis Trilogy of historical fiction which explores the trade of opium between India and China masterminded by the British East India Company.

The 2013 Warwick Prize list features works on an eclectic range of topics; from "Suddenly, A Knock on the door", a collection of short stories by Israeli writer Etgar Keret on the inanity of everyday life to "Pathfinders", British author Jim Al Khalili's celebration of Arabic scientific pioneers.

The winner of the Prize will receive £25,000 and a short placement at the University of Warwick.

Ghosh, famously withdrew his novel "The Glass Palace" from the Commonwealth Writers' Prize in 2001 in protest at what he termed the "unfairness" of the competition's English-language requirement at the time.
