Winners & Finalists

Finalist! 2006 Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize

by Audrey Thomas
Publisher: Goose Lane Editions


In mid-nineteenth-century England, Harriet Coram, abandoned as an infant at the London Foundling Hospital, becomes a maid in the home of Charles Dickens, where she is plagued by the nickname “Tattycoram,” taught to a caged raven by a nasty relative. Thirty years later, Hattie’s peace is disrupted by a woman from her past: Dickens has caricatured both of them in Little Dorrit, and Hattie must decide whether to confront the novelist who has stolen their identities. Thomas is the author of many highly acclaimed novels and has won the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize an unprecedented three times. More
