A book that took ten years to complete has become a prize winner — and one for the record books.
The story, which features writer friends exploring the injustice of Britain forcing out residents of a Chagos archipelago community, took a decade to complete because its authors lived in different countries.
The authors, who were honored at the prize's first in-person ceremony in three years, receive £10,000 (about $11,000).
