Man Booker prize 2018
18th October 2018
Anna Burns wins the 2018 Man Booker prize for her novel, Milkman, about a young woman being sexually harassed by a powerful man.
The experimental novel, Burns’s third, is narrated by an unnamed 18-year-old girl, known as “middle sister”, who is being pursued by a much older paramilitary figure, the milkman. It is “incredibly original”, according to the Booker’s chair of judges, the philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah.
