Frances Cha’s ‘If I Had Your Face’ longlisted for Dylan Thomas Prize 2021

Frances Cha’s electrifying debut If I Had Your Face has been longlisted for the prestigious Dylan Thomas Prize 2021.

The prize is awarded to the best published literary work in the English language, written by an author aged 39 or under. The shortlist announcement will take place on 25 March, with the winner revealed on 13 May, the eve of International Dylan Thomas Day.

If I Had Your Face plunges us into the mesmerizing world of contemporary Seoul – a place where extreme plastic surgery is as routine as getting a haircut, where women compete for spots in secret ‘room salons’ to entertain wealthy businessmen after hours, where K-Pop stars are the object of all-consuming obsession, and ruthless social hierarchies dictate your every move.

The Soho Agency represent Frances Cha in the UK and Commonwealth in association with Park & Fine Literary and Media.
