I have just entered the long lists for both these awards in CK. (if any one is interested). Actually seems like the long lists comprise any book published in South Africa in the last 12 months

Jacob Dlamini and Damon Galgut were announced as the winners of the 2015 Sunday Times Literary Awards at a gala dinner at Summer Place in Sandton this evening.

Dlamini received the Alan Paton Award for his book Askari: A Story of Collaboration and Betrayal in the Anti-Apartheid Struggle(Jacana Media).

Jonny Steinberg received an honourable mention from the judges for his book, A Man of Good Hope.

Galgut was awarded the Barry Ronge Fiction Prize for his novel, Arctic Summer. “The judges found the novel to be a brilliant evocation of the life of EM Forster, from an author writing at the height of his powers,” Williams said.

The awards celebrate the best of South African fiction and non-fiction writing, and this year the prize money was increased to R100 000 each
