MostlyFiction.com

First-time novelist DBC Pierre won the Man Booker Prize for his black comedy Vernon God Little. A reformed drug addict, Pierre - whose real name is Peter Finlay - was praised for capturing the world's abiding interest in modern America in his novel about a high school massacre in Texas.


The Man Booker Prize for Fiction represents the very best in contemporary fiction.  One of the world’s most prestigious awards, and one of incomparable influence, it continues to be the pinnacle of ambition for every fiction writer.

The prize aims to reward the best novel of the year written by a citizen of the Commonwealth or the Republic of Ireland. The Man Booker judges are selected from the country’s finest critics, writers and academics to maintain the consistent excellence of the prize.  The winner of the Man Booker Prize receives £50,000 and both the winner and the shortlisted authors are guaranteed a worldwide readership plus a dramatic increase in book sales.
