Anna Burns wins Man Booker prize for Milkman


Anna Burns has won this year’s Man Booker Prize with her book Milkman.

The book, set in an unnamed Northern Irish city during the Troubles, is a coming-of-age story about a young girl’s affair with a married man.

Burns is the first author from Northern Ireland to win in the Man Booker and will receive £50,000 in prize money.

The judges said Milkman was “simply marvellous”.
