Orange Prize for fiction 2011 shortlist

3. Emma Henderson, for "Grace Williams Says it Loud"

of

Grace Williams is sent to the Briar Mental Institute when she is 11. Labeled a "spastic" and a "mental defective," Grace has endured a lifetime of misunderstanding – until she meets Daniel, a fellow inmate at Briar. Writing for The Guardian, novelist Tessa Hadley calls this novel by British author Emma Henderson "exuberant and vivid," noting that, "Grace's story is a life, like and unlike any other; not a case."
