A new literary prize might be run by a British bookseller, but the shortlist certainly has established appeal in other English-speaking countries.
The Waterstones Debut Fiction Prize, launched just this year, has two books also chosen for US celebrity book clubs earlier this year.
The titles in contention are:
Lessons in Chemistry, by Bonnie Garmus
The Rabbit Hutch, by Tess Gunty
Trespasses, by Louise Kennedy
How High We Go in the Dark, by Sequoia Nagamatsu
Vagabonds!, by Eloghosa Osunde
Memphis, by Tara M. Stringfellow
We'll find out who won the £5,000 (about $5,950) prize on August 25; in the meantime, you can read more about the nominated books and authors in the Guardian.
