The Comedy Women In Print Prize announced it’s shortlist for 2020. Given the grim news that’s filling everyone’s feed, a little lighthearted is a welcome sight. The judges for this year are Marian Keyes, Lolly Adefope, Pauline McLynn, Joanna Scanlan, Paula Wilcox and Laura Steven, who won last year. Chair of the panel, Marian Keyes, told The Bookseller, “I am absolutely delighted with our list. The range is glorious – everything from light-hearted commercial fiction to literary fiction – from established names to new talent – and it’s a demonstration of all the different ways in which women can be funny in print. It was a pleasure and very exciting to read all the submissions, and these are shortlists we are very proud of.”

The books are all humourous, but not trivial or lacking depth, making them a good read as well as an uplifting one:
