LINCOLN IN THE BARDO by George Saunders wins the 2017 Man Booker Prize

By Amanda Holman | October 18 2017 | Adult

George Saunders’ rapturously reviewed and #1 New York Times bestselling LINCOLN IN THE BARDO has won the 2017 Man Booker Prize for Fiction. First awarded in 1969, the Prize is one of the most renowned annual international literary honors.

 

LINCOLN IN THE BARDO was originally published this February in the U.S. as a Random House hardcover, e-book, and audiobook. The paperback export edition publishes is now on sale.

Writing in the New York Times Book Review, Colson Whitehead called the novel “a luminous feat of generosity and humanism. Here is a crucible for heroic American identity; fearful but unflagging; hopeful even in tragedy; staggering, however tentatively, toward a better world.”

Lola Baroness Young, the Man Booker Chair of Judges, claims “the form and style of this utterly original novel, reveals a witty, intelligent, and deeply moving narrative.”

Congratulations to George Saunders, his editor Andy Ward, the Random House team, and all our 2017 Man Booker short and long listed authors published across our imprints.
