    The American writer Nicole Krauss has been shortlisted for this year’s Orange Prize for Fiction, the UK’s only award specifically for women writers.

    Ms Krauss is up for the £30,000 prize for her third book Great House, the follow-up to her international bestseller The History of Love.

    Great House, published in Britain in February, follows a collection of characters including an Israeli man estranged from his son since the Yom Kippur War and a Jewish writer who escaped the Holocaust on the Kindertransport.

    Ms Krauss, who is married to the acclaimed writer Jonathan Safran Foer, was also shortlisted for the prize in 2006.

    This year’s winner will be announced on June 8.
