2017 Man-Booker winner

bardoThe winner of the 2017 Man-Booker prize was George Saunders for his novel Lincoln in the Bardo. Written almost entirely in dialogue, this semi-historical novel is about President Lincoln grieving for his son Willie, who died during the first year of the Civil War.  Judges praised this”utterly original” and “deeply moving” work.  The Nichols library has both print and audio copies available for borrowing.  We also have two other titles shortlisted for this year’s award, History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund and Exit West by British-Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid.
