In Reply to: The Booker the top prize? posted by EdJH on September 01, 2008 at 15:52:45:
I guess the mainstream doesn't pay much attention to it because it's an award for SERIOUS fiction, not mainstream fiction, the type of books that not many people read. Although they won't admit it, they tend to give the prize to fiction that is experimental, or at least innovative.
: I noticed this site published the nominees for the Man Booker prize for fiction? (See http://www.fictionweek.com/news1.html).
: In my opinion, this should be the top award for fiction every year, but it doesn't get the press other awards like the National Book Award get. Anybody know why?
