"The Prisoner" took third place in The London Magazine Short Story Prize 2018
Here's what the judges had to say:
"The Prisoner stood out in the group for its ability to leap into a time period and history without falling back on familiar narratives and instead presenting us with an erotic story where transgressions are working on several different levels. The story is suspenseful and full of strong, memorable images with the reader immediately griped by the action and risk these characters are in as it shows the different levels of survival, both physical and emotional, at play in their world.”
