The prize used to be called the CNA Award, of course, and it used to be for SA Lit, but times have changed. Radically. Last year’s winner was The Secret. Seriaas.
Zapiro and Smith are up against ten heavy-hitting international best-selling authors, one of whom recently took his kids to Ghana. To wit:
- Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs
- Cross Country by James Patterson
- Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
- A Good Woman by Danielle Steel
- Dreams from My Father by Barack Obama
- Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult
- The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama
- Scarpetta by Patricia Cornwell
- The Shack by William P Young
- This Charming Man by Marion Keyes
The first, second and third prizes winners will be announced on Tuesday 28 July. They receive (drumroll please…) big framed certificates. Probably wise to keep it low-keyish, though; after all, what kind of cheque are you going to give the likes of James Patterson, should he win? Good luck to the local boys – especially Mr Z!
- Assegai by Wilbur Smith
