2009 Man Booker Prize Winner

Hilary Mantel's novel, Wolf Hall, was last night named as the winner of the 2009 Man Booker Prize.  I'm not sure the UK bookie's will be too happy as this novel was the favourite for the award almost since the time it was published.  Coetzee's Summertime was probably the other work to be in major contention.

Mantel won from the  following shortlisted works:

A.S. Byatt The Children's Book
J.M. Coetzee Summertime
Adam Foulds The Quickening Maze
Hilary Mantell Wolf Hall
Simon Mawer The Glass Room
Sarah Waters The Little Stranger
