Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall and Barbara Kingsolver's The Lacuna are among six titles to make the shortlist for the Orange Prize for Fiction, an annual UK literary prize awarded to a female English-language writer of any nationality. The finalists were announced on April 20 during a breakfast at the London Book Fair.

"This shortlist achieves the near impossible of combining literary merit with sheer readability," said chair of judges Daisy Goodwin.

"With a thriller, historical novels that reflect our world back to us, as well as a tragicomedy about post-9/11 America - there is something here to challenge, amuse and enthrall every kind of reader."
