100 Must-read Prize-Winning Novels: Discover your next great read...
A large number of people each year make their reading decisions on
the basis of prizes like the Booker and Orange Guide to Fiction. This
new title in the successful Must-Read series provides an overview of prize-winning fiction over the decades.
With 100 titles fully featured and over 500 read-on
recommendations, this unique survey of literature incorporates some of
the finest contemporary fiction ever produced including Salman
Rushdie's Midnight's Children (Booker), Jonathan Coe's What a Carve Up (John Llewellyn Rhys), Andrea Levy's Small Island (Orange), Louis de Bernieres's Captain Corelli's Mandolin (Commonwealth Writers' Prize), Zadie Smith's White Teeth (Guardian First Book Award), Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things (Booker).
As well as Booker and Pullitzer prize-winners the book also finds
room for those that have triumphed in less familiar prizes, such as the
Betty Trask and the John Lewellyn Rhys. It looks at prize winners in
certain genres such as crime and science fiction, as well as prize
winners from other countries: the French Prix de Goncourt and the
Australian Miles Franklin award. Because of the sheer range of prizes
across countries and genres - this is a diverse and rich list that no
book worm would want to be without.
