Man Booker winner among Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Prize nominees

5th April 2011

The books in the running for this year's Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Prize have been named, with The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson among the nominees.

Alongside the Man Booker Prize-winning book are Trials of the Diaspora by Anthony Julius, Jenny Erpenbeck's Visitation and The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal.

The Dove Flyer by Eli Amir and David Grossman's To the End of the Land make up the shortlist for the prize, with the winner due to be confirmed on June 6th.

Lisa Appignanesi, judging panel chair, said the shortlist for the 2011 prize is 'remarkable'.

She noted that it includes 'four superb novels, each one extraordinary in its own way; a scintillating memoir, and an argumentative extravaganza that attacks its dark subject with zest'.

Jacobson's book was announced as the winner of the 2010 Man Booker Prize for Fiction at a ceremony at the Guildhall in London last October.
