The collection will be released in time for the announcement of the award in July 2010. The Caine Prize is rapidly gaining attention worldwide, especially after the 10 year anniversary edition and tour in 2009. The collection showcases young writersmany of whom go on to publish successful novels, for instance: Leila Aboulela, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Brian Chikwava and Helon Habila.
