The Winner of the Obooki Prize for 2012 is…on January 1st, 2013
…Gabriel García Márquez, for his novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude. (Runner-up was Larry Niven’s The Ringworld Engineers).
I acknowledge, this is a fairly dull outcome to a fairly dull competition this year. I don’t think I read many more than 5 books of fiction by living writers. Will try to do better next year (I have plenty on my shelves).
