And the winner is…


The 2013 Man Booker Prize has been awarded to Eleanor Catton for ‘The Luminaries’ It’s nice to see a fresh new talent getting the award. New Zealander Catton is only 28, the youngest ever Booker winner. I must confess to being a little daunted by the 832 pages of the story but the more I read about it, the more interesting it sounds. Here is an extract from the book via the Telegraph and their review of the book. ‘A Victorian sensation novel wrapped in a post-modern experiment’ sounds like something I’d enjoy. Will you be reading The Luminaries? If you do or have already, please do share your thoughts with us.
