to Ruth Ozeki but the
winner sounds good too
So the man booker prize this year has gone to a 20-something year old New Zealander for a 800 or so pages novel The Luminaries which sounds really good. I mentioned Ruth Ozeki`s book in an earlier post because she was in for the prize too for her brilliant book. Well, better luck next time. Same to Colm Toibin who was in the running for the third consecutive year. His was the shortest novel in the selection while the winner`s was the longest.
