Marlon James Wins the 2015 Man Booker Prize

October 13, 2015 | 1 book mentioned 4


Jamaican novelist Marlon James has won this year’s Man Booker Prize for A Brief History of Seven Killings. James is the first Jamaican-born writer to win the Prize. Our own Janet Potter and Michael Schaub wrestled with the book on The Book Report earlier this year.

  1. Whew! Another Booker to a non-American means another year to reconsider the policy change allowing Americans to be eligible. The Man Booker Prize rules should be changed back before it’s too late.

  2. The best novel won, and the verdict was unanimous and no arguments. ‘A Little Life’? Good grief. I agree with RB’s post.
