The Stella Prize 2021

2021 Winner Announced!

Congratulations to Evie Wyld who has won the 2021 Stella Prize for her book, The Bass Rock.

From the Chair of the 2021 Stella Judging panel, Zoya Patel:

"The Bass Rock is a consuming and perplexing book, one that forces the reader to think and engage with the unique narrative structure, but in a way that feels effortless, so engaged are you by the story. This is a novel that demonstrates the author's versatility of style, with the separate narrative parts each having an individual voice. And yet, at no point does the book feel disjointed. Instead, it is as though Evie Wyld has chosen each and every word with precision, building a novel that is a true work of art."
