The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje wins the Golden Man Booker Prize

The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje (Bloomsbury) has been crowned the best work of fiction from the last five decades of the Man Booker Prize. The Golden Man Booker winner was revealed at the Man Booker 50 Festival in Royal Festival Hall at Southbank Centre.

The winner of this special one-off award for the Man Booker Prize’s 50th anniversary celebrations was chosen by the public.

The Golden Man Booker Prize, a special one-off award to celebrate the 50th anniversary in 2018, crowns the best work of fiction from the last five decades of the prize, as chosen by five judges and then voted for by the public.

The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje is set in 1945.

The English Patient explores the lives of four very disparate war torn people, a young woman and three men, who take refuge in a damaged villa north of Florence as the war retreats around them.

In an upstairs room lies the badly burned English patient, alive but unable to move. His extraordinary adventures and turbulent love affair in the North African desert before the war provide the focus around which the vivid tales of his companions revolve.

His very presence will forever change the destiny of those around him.
