Well, it’s not quite as dramatic as the Nobel Prize in Literature, but we have another book award to share today.

Lara Williams has won the Not The Booker Prize for Supper Club, her debut novel.

All three judges cast their votes for Supper Club, overriding the popular-vote's choice of The Unauthorised Biography of Ezra Maas by Daniel James.

Supper Club, according to its blurb, is the tale of “a secret society of hungry young women who meet after dark and feast to reclaim their appetites —and their physical spaces — that posits the question: If you feed a starving woman, what will she grow into?

Interestingly — or perhaps unsurprisingly — it received the fewest public votes; check out the popular-vote breakdown and judges’ comments on the Guardian’s website.
