Man Booker Prize 2013 til Eleanor Catton

Vinneren av årets Man Booker Prize ble offentliggjort i går, og Eleanor Catton stakk av med den kjente prisen for romanen The Luminaries. Hun er ikke bare den yngste vinneren noen sinne (28 nå, 27 da romanen ble gitt ut) – romanen er også den lengste vinneren med sine 837 sider. Hun er fra New Zealand, og er bare den andre forfatteren derfra som har vunnet prisen.

Om romanen:
It is 1866, and Walter Moody has come to make his fortune upon the New Zealand goldfields. On the stormy night of his arrival, he stumbles across a tense gathering of twelve local men, who have met in secret to discuss a series of unsolved crimes. A wealthy man has vanished, a prostitute has tried to end her life, and an enormous fortune has been discovered in the home of a luckless drunk. Moody is soon drawn into the mystery: a network of fates and fortunes that is as complex and exquisitely patterned as the night sky.

The Luminaries står igjen som vinneren etter å ha danket ut totalt 151 nominerte. Øvrige kandidater som var med på kortlista er som følger:

We Need New Names – NoViolet Bulawayo (Chatto & Windus)
Harvest – Jim Crace (Picador)
The Lowland – Jhumpa Lahiri (Bloomsbury)
A Tale for the Time Being – Ruth Ozeki (Canongate)
The Testament of Mary – Colm Tóibín (Penguin)

@shanedawson is one of those people that manages to make me laugh on a crappy day. His gallows humour and self-depreciation appeals to me. 😋😅 I've laughed until I've cried at some of his content. In a good way.

It's a stylistically simple series for children, and where in the previous two books a bear and a fish have to deal with hat-problems, this time two turtles find one. They decide to put it back where they found it, because there's just one hat, and two turtles. But one of the turtles can't quite stop thinking about the hat... Where the previous two sports some dark humour, this one is surprisingly sweet. I like the simple and clean art work - this one is just as enjoyable as the previous books! 🙂

Den er nylig utgitt på norsk, og jeg har fått mitt eksemplar av forlaget.

It is part of the Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions series. Bit too big and heavy to comfortably carry around with you, unfortunately.

I finally printed it a few days ago, but I've yet to actually read through it. Primarily because I remember all the little issues with the plot.  There's no time to fix stuff like that as the madness is happening...
I've sort of promised my #writingbuddy @kavehrashidi, who wrote his own novel at the same time, that he gets to read it. So I figured I'd do something about some of the issues... It's just such an effort. 😅
But yeah, it's quite the achievement to manage to put together something that resembles a novel in one month! 🎉🎖 #NaNoWriMo #novel #roman #book #bøker #books #bok #scifi #sciencefiction #tea #te  #papers #words #ord #writing #editing #redigering #bookstagram #bookish #instabook #literature #litteratur #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips New book!

Some of them missed their chance simply because they just vanished in the crowd, but others were downright weird. Ever heard of Doll Man? Jigsaw? Fatman the Human Flying Saucer..? #bøker #books #bok #reading #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #litteratur #literature #bookporn #superhero #jonmorris #theleagueofregrettablesuperheroes #lootcrate #comics #comicbooks #tegneserie
