Hands on the prize.

On her third nomination and in the face of stiff competition, Zadie Smith won Britain s coveted Orange Prize for Fiction, awarded in London, June 6, for her novel, On Beauty (Penguin, September 2005). The prize of 30,000 [pounds sterling] honors fiction by women who write in English. Gracious in her acceptance, Smith said: I have read everything on the shortlist and I know its quality is incredible. Every writer has aspects of style I genuinely covet. They are extraordinary women and extraordinary writers.
