Even if you don’t care about book awards, domestic or international, you might find this post about the Prix Goncourt interesting.
France’s top literary prize was handed out today to Jean-Paul Dubois for Tous les hommes n'habitent pas le monde de la même façon (roughly translated as All Men Do Not Inhabit This World in the Same Way).
What do you think it nets him?
Actually, just 10 euros (about $11).
That said, according to the AFP, it also nearly guarantees that the book will become a bestseller.
Dubois’s novel stars a prisoner looking back on his life who talks to the dead in his head, to help keep him sane.
You can read more about the novelist, whose victory was seen as a huge upset, and his reaction here.
