The five category winners for the Costa Book Awards were announced yesterday.

These five books will compete for the overall title, to be revealed January 28: 

Each of these titles, deemed among the most outstanding books of the year written by UK- or Ireland-based authors, receives a £5,000 (about $6,560) prize.

Middle England has drawn significant attention, given that Brexit heavily influences its plot; judges called it “the perfect novel for now.”

Last year’s overall winner was the biography The Cut Out Girl, by Bart van Es.
