The 2013 Man Booker Prize is Announced
Eleanor Catton is the youngest winner of the Man Booker Prize. She won it for “The Luminaries”, which is the longest book to win this Prize (832 pages). This epic 19th century mystery, set during the New Zealand gold rush, involves a missing rich man, a dead hermit, a large amount of gold, and a beaten-up whore. Place your hold on it now.
