Small world

As the Stirling Prize jurors got acquainted on their first day of judging last week (Gateshead, Edinburgh and Dublin in one day must have been pretty tiring), an extraordinary coincidence emerged: fashion guru Wayne Hemingway and author Kate Mosse (she founded the Orange fiction prize) have daughters in the same year at a Chichester school. As the Spanish say, the world is a pocket handkerchief. The jury completed its visits this week but the final judging, as ever, will not take place until the afternoon preceding the awards dinner. It is going to be close.
