Howard Jacobson has won the 2010 Man Booker Prize for The Finkler Question. I loved Galgut’s In a Strange Room, but I’m very happy that The Finkler Question won.
This year was a good year for me. Of the four shortlisters I read, I would have been happy had In a Strange Room, The Finkler Question, or C won. Had Parrot and Olivier in America won, I would have at least said they gave it to a good writer, even if I didn’t particularly enjoy the book.
