Man Booker Prize 2017

The Man Booker Prize longlist was announced last night in London. The prize, which launched in 1969, aims to promote the finest in fiction by rewarding the best novel of the year written in English. To maintain the consistent excellence of The Man Booker Prize, judges are chosen from a wide range of disciplines, including critics, writers and academics, but also poets, politicians and actors, all with a passion for quality fiction. The winner of The Man Booker Prize receives £50,000 and, like all the shortlisted authors, a cheque for £2,500 and a designer bound copy of their book.
