The Man Booker Prize

Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.

This literary prize, formerly known as the Booker Prize, is sponsored by the Man Group and the Booker Prize Foundation (BPF) is responsible for its organisation and operation. The Man Booker Prize aims to reward the best novel of the year written by a citizen of the Commonwealth or the Republic of Ireland.

The winner of the Man Booker Prize receives £50,000.

The Man Booker Prize differs from the Man Booker International Prize in that the latter recognises a writer’s body of work and is awarded every two years. See the Man Booker Prize website for more information.
