We are delighted that Keeping in Touch by Anjali Joseph has been shortlisted for The Society of Authors Gordon Bowker Volcano Prize for a novel focusing on the experience of travel away from home.
'The 2023 Gordon Bowker Volcano Prize shortlist is an eclectic mix. Historic, contemporary and futuristic. Taking us around the world from Europe to South and East Asia, and even under the sea. Through love, romance, betrayal and war. These books are different. But they share two important qualities. They all conjure an incredible sense of time and place. And they all weave intriguing stories in the lives of believable characters.'
—Kerry Young, 2023 Gordon Bowker Volcano Prize judge
