2 Authors Share 2019 Booker Prize For Fiction

The judges of the 2019 Booker Prize for Fiction on 14th of October awarded the prize to two authors: Margaret Atwood for The Testaments and Bernardine Evaristo for Girl, Woman, Other.

The Booker Prize has been jointly awarded twice before, to Nadine Gordimer and Stanley Middleton in 1974 and to Michael Ondaatje and Barry Unsworth in 1992.

In 1993, the rules were changed so that only one author could win the prize.

This is the first time since then that two authors have been announced as joint-winners.

The 2019 winners will share the £50,000 prize money.

The winner of the Booker Prize is generally assured international renown and success; therefore, the prize is of great significance for the book trade.
