Initially made possible by an Arts Council grant in 2017, the prize looks for novels which explore and expand the possibilities of the form, which are innovative and imaginative in style, which tackle subjects and themes relevant to the world we live in. Adam Mars-Jones receives a £3,000 prize in the form of an advance against publication, and Box Hill will be published in Fitzcarraldo Editions’ fiction list in March 2020.
