Banville wins the Booker!

Second time lucky for Banville as The Sea is chosen the winner of the Man Booker Prize 2005. I am glad that this means a lot more people will read Banville.

Needless to say, Mark Sarvas is ecstatic. I am jumping for joy myself after being part of the Banville rooting minority.

Earlier Banville stuff here, there, a little bit everywhere.

Ok, The Sea has now moved to the top of my wishlist. So many books to read and so little time.

Indeed I am :) Now I just need to win my copy in the British Council lucky draw and make it a double celebration.
