The Sunday Times Award For Literary Excellence: Elena Ferrante

With over 15 million copies of her Neapolitan Novels sold in 45 languages across more than 50 countries, adaptations of her work in high demand across TV, film and stage and named as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People, the Italian writer Elena Ferrante is a global literary sensation. We are thrilled that she will be the recipient of the 2021 The Sunday Times Award for Literary Excellence, joining an elite list of winners that includes Ted Hughes, Seamus Heaney, Harold Pinter, Margaret Atwood, Anne Tyler, Ian McEwan, John Le Carre, Kazuo Ishiguro and Edna O’Brien. Famously anonymous, Ferrante is represented at the Festival by an actor (to be announced) who will deliver a specially commissioned lecture and her publisher Eva Ferri joins us to accept the award.
