Dylan Thomas award shortlist

Six young authors have been named as finalists for the first Dylan Thomas £60,000 award, the world's largest literary prize.

The shortlist includes UK authors Rachel Trezise, Nick Laird, James Scudamore and playwright Lucy Caldwell.

They are joined by American Liza Ward and Zimbabwe-based Ian Holding in the running for the prize, which will be announced in October.

The judges said they had been "blown away" by what they had read.

The six writers - all under 30 to comply with the rules of the award - have been selected from a 14-strong shortlist unveiled in July.
