While our local focus may have been on ArtPrize, two major literary awards were announced recently. First, the Man Booker Prize was awarded to Hilary Mantel for Wolf Hall. The Man Booker Prize is a prestigious award for contemporary fiction written by a citizen of the British Commonwealth or Ireland. And second, the Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to Herta Müller, a Romanian-born German author who has penned The Land of Green Plums and The Appointment, among others. The Nobel Prize is given to authors from around the world based upon a writer’s career, not a particular title. Also, be sure to check out other award-winning titles.
