2015 Man Booker Prize announced

  14th October 2015

A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James is named as the winner of the 2015 Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

The novel is a soaring, blistering read. It comprises multiple narrators and weaves reggae and patois, high and low, life and death to create a truly unique representation of violence in Jamaica. Set against the backdrop of 1970s reggae culture, disco, sex and excess, it is a fictional history of the attempted murder of Bob Marley in 1976.
