A debut novel from South Africa has joined the shortlist for this year’s Green Carnation Prize, which awards writing by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) authors.

Moffie by Andre Carl Van Der Merwe (Europa Editions) joins Kerry Hudson’s Tony Hogan Bought Me an Ice Cream Before He Stole Me Ma (Chatto), the second debut on the six-strong list.

Two titles from Fourth Estate are also nominated: A Perfectly Good Man By Patrick Gale and Scenes From Early Life by Philip Hensher.

The list is completed by two American authors, Carol Anshaw for Carry the One (Penguin) and Edmund White for Jack Holmes and His Friend (Bloomsbury).
