Man Booker Prize 2019

We have a winner! Actually, we have two winners. It’s not a first in Booker Prize history, but it was unexpected since the rules were changed in 1992 to disallow joint awards.

The Booker Prize is “the leading literary award in the English speaking world … Awarded annually to the best novel of the year written in English and published in the UK or Ireland.”
