The ‘Man Booker Prize’, a literary prize awarded each year for the best original novel (written in English and published in the UK) is generally assured international renown and success.
The prize is of great significance for book sales.
This year, two British-Pakistani authors, Mohsin Hamid and Kamila Shamsie, have been nominated for the prize.
Hamid belongs to the city of Lahore, while Kamila belongs to Karachi.
Hamid received a lot of appreciation for his phenomenal books through numerous awards in the past years. His second novel, ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, is an international best-seller.
Shamsie’s outstanding work includes ‘Kartography’, her third novel, which became a hit world-wide.
We are so proud of both of you writers!
