And the Winner is….
Well if you ask me the judges copped out this year and rather than make a straightforward decision they have awarded the prize to two winners:
Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo – the first black woman to win the prize. Major kudos to Evaristo this is the book that should have won.
The Testaments by Margaret Atwood – In my opinion Atwood doesn’t need the extra recognition so why take the focus away from what could have been a major triumph for diversity?
As you can imagine the internet is up in arms about this decision and frankly I don’t blame anyone.
What do you think of this decision? Let us know!
