2016 Fellow Deborah Smith wins the Man Booker

  • Huge congratulations to Deborah Smith and Han Kang, winners of this years Man Booker Prize. The Vegetarian was also included in Deborah's application to the Arts Foundation last year and was much lauded by the judges Paul Blezard, Meike Ziergovel and Amanda Hopkinson at the time. Deborah has been able to benefit also from the new stipulation which gives half the prize money to the translator, a wonderful move by the organisers highlighting the importance of the translator in the success of a book being sold in other languages.
