    The Costa Book Awards shortlist winners have been announced:

    First Novel Award - Witness the Night by Kishwar Desai In a small town in the heart of India, a young girl is found tied to a bed inside a townhouse where thirteen people lie dead. The girl is alive, but she has been beaten and abused. She is held in the local prison, awaiting interrogation for the murders she is believed by the local people to have committed.

    Novel Award - The Hand That First Held Mine by Maggie O'Farrell A gorgeously written story of love and motherhood, this is a tour de force from one of our best loved novelists.

    Poetry Award - Of Mutability by Jo Shapcott Offers a collection of poems that explores the nature of change - in the body and the natural world, and in the shifting relationships between people.

    Children's Book Award - Out of Shadows by Jason Wallace Zimbabwe, 1980s The war is over, independence has been won and Robert Mugabe has come to power offering hope, land and freedom to black Africans. It is the end of the Old Way and the start of a promising new era. For Robert Jacklin, it's all new: new continent, new country, new school.

    Biography Award - The Hare With Amber Eyes by Edmund De Waal A memoir that traces the network of a remarkable family against the backdrop of a tumultuous century. It tells the story of a unique collection which passed from hand to hand - and which, in a twist of fate, found its way home to Japan.
