#Seminal: Kamila Shamsie long-listed for 2015 Bailey's Women's Prize for Literature

The accolades keep piling up for Kamila Shamsie for her sprawling and beautiful work 'A God in Every Stone'.

The British Pakistani author is among 20 outstanding authors long-listed for the 2015 Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction which will be announced this summer.

The list features an incredible array of writers and writing vying for the £30,000 prize.

Liberty director Shami Chakrabarti, Chair of judging committee, said: “The Prize’s 20th year is a particularly strong one for women’s fiction. 

"All judges fought hard for their favourites and the result is a 2015 list of 20 to be proud of – with its mix of genres and styles, first-timers and well-known names from around the world.“

Shamsie's nomination comes just months after she was shortlisted for the DSC Prize for Literature - one of a string of accolades for 'A God In Every Stone'.

The book is a sprawling epic that marries fact and fiction and one in which Shamsie contrasts the fortunes of three distinct empires - the ancient Persians between 515 and 485 BCE, the Ottoman empire and the decline of the British Raj.

The book is her sixth novel.

The winner of the 2015 Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction will be revealed 3 June.
