2011 Man Booker International Prize

| No TrackBacks
Philip Roth has been named the winner of the 2011 Man Booker International Prize.  This award is given for a lifetime's work rather than a particular book, so it is more akin to the Nobel than the yearly Man Booker Prize.

But the award has not been without controversy after one of the judges, Carmen Callil, resigned in response.  She hadn't wanted Roth longlisted for the prize, let alone being named the winner.
