The $50,000 prize is presented to the best work of fiction or nonfiction by an Australian woman published in the previous calendar year.
Chair of judges and Stella Prize co-founder Louise Swinn said, ‘The six books on this year’s shortlist are all outward-looking, and they tell stories – of illness, family life, friendship, domestic abuse, and more – in remarkable ways'.
You can see other shortlisted titles on the Stella Prize website. The winner of the prize will be announced on 8 April.
Congratulations to Tara and Caro for this wonderful achievement.
