It took six hours of discussion, but the 2023 Booker Prize judges finally chose a winner.
Esi Edugyan, the judging chair, described the book about an Ireland descending into right-wing tyranny as a “soul-shattering and true” novel that “captures the social and political anxieties of our current moment," reports the Guardian.
Lynch was favored by several bookies to win the 2023 Booker.
