George Saunders won Man Booker Prize for Lincoln in the Bardo

American author George Saunders has won the prestigious 2017 Man Booker Prize for his novel Lincoln in the Bardo .The novel is a fiction about restless souls adrift in the afterlife.“The form and style of this utterly original novel reveals a witty, intelligent, and deeply moving narrative,” said Baroness Lola Young while announcing the prize. Young also said that the fiction stood out of all the entries “because of its innovation, its very different styling; the way in which it paradoxically brought to life these almost dead souls, not quite dead souls, this other world.”Judges of the Man Booker Prize praised Saunders and his “utterly original” novel Lincoln in the Bardo which chronicles the death of Abraham Lincoln s 11-year-old son Willie using over 100 narrators.
