LONDON -- Toronto author Sheila Heti is among the contenders for this year's Women's Prize for Fiction.
Heti's book How Should A Person Be? has made the long list of 20 candidates for the award that was previously known as the Orange Prize for Fiction.

The winner gets Çä30,000, or about C$46,000.
Heti's competition includes Hilary Mantel's Man Booker Prize-winning novel Bring Up the Bodies.
