The longlist for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award was unveiled this week and included Yasmin Cordery Khan’s stunning debut ‘Edgware Road’, a wide-ranging and affecting novel about family and identity, and which was published in hardback in January 2022.

The winner of the award, which is open to any début novel written in English and published in the UK, will receive £2,500 cash. The winning novel will be selected by this year’s guest adjudicator Louisa Young from a shortlist drawn up by a panel of Authors’ Club members, chaired by Lucy Popescu.

‘Edgware Road’ is out now in hardback and ebook and will be available in paperback 3rd March 2023.
