BOOKER PRIZE
Booker Prize es el nombre de un premio literario que se concede anualmente a una obra de ficción en inglés publicada en el Reino Unido, Irlanda o cualquier otro país de la Commonwealth. El premio, que viene otorgándose desde 1969 y es uno de los más conocidos en el Reino Unido, está financiado por la empresa Booker McConnell. La entrega de premios, en la que se anuncia el ganador, provoca un considerable interés en los medios de comunicación y se televisa en directo. La decisión de los jueces, normalmente escritores, catedráticos y críticos, suele generar bastante polémica.
