mary watson, caine winner

Left is Mary Watson, winner of the Caine Prize 2006, photographed at the South Bank Centre, London on 11 July.

Watson, a South African, won the prize for Jungfrau. The story is taken from her collection of short stories, Moss (Kwela Books).

My report on the reading is available online - for a week.

Others at the reading, Ebun Olatoye of True Love (W. Africa) magazine, poses (right) with short-listed Darrel Bristow-Bovey.

Writer Ike Anya is also shown with literary activist Kadija George. "But I'm not famous!" George demurred when I was about to photograph her. "A lot of people are famous because of your efforts," I told her.
