A Girl with a Mind




The Women’s Prize for Fiction (formerly known as the Orange Prize) has a new partner: Baileys, the Original Irish Cream Liquor. Quoth Kate Mosse, Chair of the Women’s Prize for Fiction board, “We were impressed not only by the scale of their ambition, but also their passion for celebrating outstanding fiction by women and willingness to help in bringing the prize to ever wider audiences.” This we do know: they have long celebrated the fiction that beautiful women constantly drink large glasses of Baileys on the rocks. But we’re happy to see the prize getting sponsorship—at least through 2017.
