SIX WRITERS APPLY TO THE BOOKER AWARD 2016
Three men and three women whose prose stirred the world were on the shortlist of the Booker Prize, one of the most prestigious in literature. It has been awarded since 1969 and is accompanied by a number of rules, including the possibility of awarding it to an author whose work has been translated into English and can be purchased by any reader around the world.
Previously, Bookers were awarded to artists who were nationals of the United Kingdom, Ireland or the Commonwealth of Independent States. However, in 2014, this item was changed to make the pursuit of the Prize the right to start all English-speaking writers, regardless of nationality.
Yes, Booker-2016 finalists include Canadian-born Malay-Chinese writer Madeleine Tien, whose pen is the "Don't Say We Have Nothing" saga. Its events unfold during the revolution in China, and reflect on issues such as misunderstanding and betrayal in the novel.
Paul Beatty's "Sale" by the New York Times is one of the best books of the past year. In addition, the "Sale" of all Award nominees is the most sarcastic, as it brings up the subject of African-American slavery's return.
Eileen Otessi Moshfeh is the shortest-running shortlist novel. He tells of the passive murder of a young girl by his own alcoholic father and touches on topics of moral choice and love for loved ones. The most original is David Shalay's "All That Man" by Canadian Briton, the most unexpected is Graham Macrae's court drama "His Dirty Plan," and Deborah Levi's most poignant is Hot Milk.
The name of the Booker-2016 winner will become known at the end of October. The amount of the award is $ 65.5 thousand.
