Man International Booker Prize Winner

I must have been asleep last week when the winner of the first Man International Booker Prize was announced. On Thursday June 2nd, the judging committee announced the winner as Ismail Kadaré, Albania's best-known poet and novelist, who has lived in France since 1990. In his survey of the shortlisted authors "The Australian"s Murray Waldren quoted Kadaré at 80/1. Not bad odds if you got them.
