    Review quote
    'These works, five shortlisted for the prize and a further 12 drawn from the Caine prizes's attendent writing workshop, cannot be neatly surmissed or blithely stereotyped... This is a vital collection of stories drawing on a rich treasury of material that couldn't have come from anywhere else' Alex Rayner, The Guardian. 'Over its 12 outings, the stories shortlisted for the Caine Prize for African Writing have offered readers a one-stop shop window of the continent's brightest new talents. On Monday, NoViolet Bulawayo from Zimbabwe (right) took the GBP10,000 award for "Hitting Budapest", published in The Boston Review. Hisham Matar, chair of the judges, praised the "moral power and weight" of a story about a gang of vulnerable kids from a author who "takes delight in language". Once again, the entire shortlist - plus other stories from the Caine Prize workshops - is published in a single volume: To See the Mountain (New Internationalist, GBP8.99). Once again, it's a revelation.' Boyd Tonkin, The Independent
