The Luminaries, by Eleanor Catton

Congratulations to Eleanor Catton, who has just been awarded the Man Booker Prize for her epic novel, The Luminaries (McClelland & Stewart)! Eleanor was born in London, Ontario and lives in New Zealand. She makes history as the youngest winner of the Booker Prize yet, but what she lacks in age she makes up for in page count: at 832 pages, The Luminaries is also the longest Booker winner ever!
