The winner of our 2016 competition publishes her first novel
In the light of our announcement of this year’s short-story prize, it seems fitting that a previous winner, 27-year-old Daisy Johnson (who came joint first in Bazaar’s 2016 competition), is publishing her debut novel this month. ‘It grabbed me from the first page and wouldn’t let me go,’ says the acclaimed author Evie Wyld in praise of
Everything Under, a story of love and loss in a style that has been likened to Angela
Carter. ‘To read Daisy Johnson is to have that rare feeling of meeting an author you’ll read for the rest of your
life.’ teresa fitzherbert ‘Everything Under’ by Daisy Johnson (£14.99, Jonathan Cape) is published on 12 July.
