Man Booker news

The Man Booker Prize's customary newsletter arrives in my mailbox. So there it is. Britain' most coveted prize event celebrates 40 years in the business. For the first time, readers can expect film adaptations of former Booker & Man Booker wins in London, view a current exhibition being held at the Victoria & Albert museum and wait with expectant news for the British Council's efforts at creating an online portal for contemporary British Literature i.e. featuring e-books and this to include those prestigious winning stories.
On other news, Anne Enright whose novel, The Gathering won the Man Booker Prize in October, prepares for a gruelling world tour as requests flood in and foreign rights are sold in 31 countries.
Also Michael Portillo will chair the Man Booker panel for 2008 and you may read details of the other judges here.
To save you a longer ramble, catch everything here.
