Indian-British Writer’s Book on AI Shortlisted for Women’s Prize

The inaugural Women’s Prize for Non-Fiction has announced its shortlist of six books, including “Code Dependent: Living in the Shadow of AI” by Indian-British journalist and commentator Madhumita Murgia. The book explores the impact of artificial intelligence on human society.

Diverse Topics and Perspectives

The other shortlisted books cover a wide range of subjects:

  • “Thunderclap: A Memoir of Art and Life and Sudden Death” by Laura Cumming
  • “Doppelganger: A Trip Into the Mirror World” by Naomi Klein
  • “A Flat Place” by Noreen Masud
  • “All That She Carried: The Journey of Ashley’s Sack, a Black Family Keepsake” by Tiya Miles
  • “How to Say Babylon: A Jamaican Memoir” by Safiya Sinclair

The common thread among the books is their originality of voice and ability to turn complex ideas and personal trauma into compelling prose.
