The award is among the most prestigious for young writers and honors the best international literature from those thirty-nine and younger.

The winner, who receives £20,000 (about $24,600), will be announced May 11, just a few days before International Dylan Thomas Day (May 14).

Here are the contenders:

Shire, Patel, Ifeakandu, and Sams are all nominated for their debut publications; last year's winner, No One is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood, was the author's first novel..
