In September, the Editors of Bold Type announced our First Annual Short Story Contest. Four months and one million words later, we are pleased to announce the results.
Everything You Know Zoe Heller

Willy Muller, the anti-hero of Zoë Heller's Everything You Know, navigates his tumultuous life with a deft blend of apathy and intolerance. Read an excerpt from Heller's hilarious and poignant debut novel and an interview with the author.
The New City Stephen Amidon

Stephen Amidon's ambitious story of racial and class conflicts set in a newly-built planned community outside of Washington, D.C. in 1973 is a powerful social novel, reminiscent of The Ice Storm and the recent work of Richard Price, had his settings been suburban rather than inner-city. The New City is a grand and haunting piece of fiction, utterly gripping and superbly rendered.
Georgiana Amanda Foreman

Amanda Foreman's biography of Lady Georgiana Spencer (great-great-great-great-great aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales) won Britain's prestigious Whitbread Prize and was a bestseller for months. Not content with the role of society hostess, Georgiana became one of the most influential figures in English politics, while concealing a private life troubled by uncontrollable gambling, drug taking, and love affairs.
