From the Booker Prize site:

Howard Jacobson is tonight (Tuesday 12 October) named the winner of the £50,000 Man Booker Prize for Fiction for The Finkler Question, published by Bloomsbury.

London author and columnist Howard Jacobson has been longlisted twice for the prize, in 2006 for Kalooki Nights and in 2002 for Who’s Sorry Now, but has never before been shortlisted.

The Finkler Question is a novel about love, loss and male friendship, and explores what it means to be Jewish today.

The Booker Prize short list:

  • Peter Carey for “Parrot and Olivier in America” (Faber and Faber)
  • Ms. Donoghue for “Room” (Picador; Pan Macmillan)
  • Damon Galgut for “In a Strange Room” (Atlantic Books; Grove Atlantic)
