The judges of the 2022 Women’s Prize for Fiction are "over the moon" to reveal the award's winner.
In a statement, the chair praised the novel's "sparkling writing, warmth, intelligence, humor and poignancy."
The Book of Form and Emptiness follows a boy who, a year after his father's death, begins to hear objects' voices.
He seeks refuge from the din in a library, where he discovers not just quiet, well-behaved objects, but also supportive — and quirky — adults.
You can read more praise for Ozeki, learn about her inspiration for the novel, and watch her be announced as the winner on the Women's Prize website.
