Congratulations are in order for several authors today.
This fictionalized biography of author Thomas Mann was deemed the best work of literature regardless of genre and, as a consequence, receives £30,000 ($39,600).
The Guardian has judges' praise and Tóibín's reaction.
On the nonfiction (and US) side, we have the J. Anthony Lukas Prize Project Awards, given to the best in American nonfiction writing.
The Anthony Lukas Book Prize (worth $10,000) went to Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival & Hope in an American City, by Andrea Elliott.
The Mark Lynton History Prize (also worth $10,000) went to Surviving Katyń: Stalin’s Polish Massacre and the Search for Truth, by Jane Rogoyska.
And the two winners of the Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award Winners (worth $25,000) were
We Were Once a Family: The Hart Murder-Suicide and the System Failing Our Kids, by Roxanna Asgarian, and The Life: Sex, Work, and Love in America, by May Jeong.
