Tea Obreht Wins Orange Prize

One of the most talked about debuts of last year, Tea Obreht’s The Tiger’s Wife, has won the Orange Prize for Fiction. At 25, she is the youngest person ever to win this award.

Her book won over a short list of strong contenders, including Emma Donoghue’s Room, Jennifer Egan’s National Book Critic Circle Award winner, A Visit from the Goon Squad, and Nicole Krauss’s Great House.

The Award was announced in London. The Orange Prize was established to recognize fiction  by women and is open to any woman writing in English.
