Man Booker Prize

The Man Booker Prize is limited to fiction written in English, but now that it’s open to writers from anywhere (it used to be limited to more or less those from the Commonwealth) the contenders tend to be from a greater variety of places, making it a more international award.

They’ve now announced that this year’s prize goes to The Sellout (by Paul Beatty).
