Michael-Ondaatjes-The-English-Patient-700-01

A novel tilted 'The English Patient' authored by Sri Lankan born Canadian Michael Ondaatje won the Golden Man Booker Prize in London. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Man Booker prize, the shortlist of five novels was selected by a panel of judges from the 51 previous winners of the Man Booker, which honors the best novels written in English and published in Britain or Ireland.

Baroness Helena Kennedy, chair of the Booker Prize Foundation, said: "The English Patient is a compelling work of fiction — both poetic and philosophical. As we celebrate the prize's 50th anniversary, it's a testament to the impact and legacy of the Man Booker Prize that all of the winning books are still in print."
