American novelist A.M. Homes has clinched this year’s Women’s Prize for Fiction. She won this Prize for her sixth novel, “May We Be Forgiven.” Other closest contenders were award winning writer Hilary Mantel and three other finalists for the $ 45,000 prize. Earlier known as the Orange Prize, this is Britain’s one of the most prestigious literary awards.

May We Be Forgiven” is a darkly comic novel that incorporates the sensibilities of the twenty-first-century domestic life and the possibility of personal transformation. Thus, the novel is said to be an unnerving, yet funny tale of unexpected intimacies and of how deeply broken family might start to put itself back together.
