Tonight, the Man Booker Prize winner was announced.
Lincoln in the Bardo
by George Saunders
See Lee’s review here.
Well, Lincoln in the Bardo is quite an accomplishment, if not one I ended up loving. I’m also not in love with the fact that this is the second year in a row this quintessentially British prize has gone to an American author, for a book that is very American (last year Paul Beatty’s The Sellout won).
Still, congratulations are in order, and I know many are going to be thrilled with this winner!
