AFTER THE PARTY, by Cressida Connolly, has been longlisted for the 2019 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction. The prize, now in its tenth year, celebrates fiction in which the majority of the storyline takes place at least sixty years ago. Connolly’s novel delves into Oswald Mosley’s 1930s fascist Britain, to tell a story of political turmoil and one woman’s long-held guilt. The winner will be announced at the Borders Book Festival in Melrose, Scotland in June. The full Bookseller announcement can be read here.
