“Women to the fore, Literally !”   6 comments

When this beautiful serendipity hit me, neither did I care to browse through the immediate literary history of our times nor the names of the great men and women of words decorating the list of renowned literary prizes. Therefore, it is relying on pure instinct that I claim that a NEVER BEFORE coincidence occurred in the Literary world this year (2013) and posting the same !

Including the ORANGE/ WOMEN’S PRIZE FOR FICTION won by A.M.HOMES for her novel MAY WE BE FORGIVEN, the year 2013 has witnessed a one of a kind TRIAD. Completing the trinity is this year’s MAN BOOKER PRIZE winner ELEANOR CATTON for her door – stopper of a novel “THE LUMINARIES” and ALICE MUNRO, winner of NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE 2013 renowned for her short stories. And guess what ? You have AN ALL WOMEN LIST !

I guess there has never been an all women list in BOOKER and NOBEL so far. This year its WOMEN ALL THE WAY !! Way to go Ladies !!
