A book that took ten years to complete has become a prize winner — and one for the record books.

Diego Garcia by Natasha Soobramanien and Luke Williams is the first collaboration to win the Goldsmiths Prize, which honors "fiction at its most novel," reports the Guardian.

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).
