Man Booker International Prize
Philip Roth has been announced as the winner of this year's Man Booker International Prize. The award is given every two years to one living author for his or her full body of work. A formal dinner in Roth's honor will be held June 28 in London. In his acceptance, Roth said, "I hope the prize will bring me to the attention of readers around the world who are not familiar with my work. This is a great honor and I'm delighted to receive it."
