Anne Enright declared favourite for Baileys women's prize for fiction.


Fresh from winning the Irish novel of the year award, Anne Enright has been declared the favourite to take this year's Baileys women's prize for fiction.

Enright, Ireland's fiction laureate, won the €15,000 (£11,500) Kerry Group novel of the year award earlier this week for The Green Road. About four children returning to the west coast of Ireland as their mother prepares to sell the family home, it is also in the running for the Baileys prize, now with odds of 5/2 from William Hill to win the £30,000 award when it is announced on 8 June.
