McEwan Scoops Another Gong
Eminent British novelist Ian McEwan has been awarded Israel’s prestigious Jerusalem Prize. It’s the latest of a long list of accolades awarded to McEwan, hailed by the jury as “one of the most important novelists of our time”.
Although it carries a modest cash purse, the Jerusalem Prize - awarded on odd-numbered years since 1963 - brings with it the prestige of its list of laureates. In 2009 the prize went to Haruki Murakami.
