A. M. Homes wins Women's Prize for Fiction for May We Be Forgiven

Jun 05 2013

May We Be Forgiven, an often breathtakingly dark and crazy satire on modern American life caused a literary upset on Wednesday night when it won the women's prize for fiction (formerly the Orange Prize) beating novels by Zadie Smith, Kate Atkinson and the bookies' favorite, Hilary Mantel. AM Homes is the fifth American in a row to be named winner of the £30,000 prize (~US$45,000).
