Lost Man Booker Prize for Hazzard?

The Library's own Shirley Hazzard is on the longlist for the Lost Man Booker Prize for the best omitted novel of 1970! These are novels that missed out on being named to the Booker longlist due to rule changes in 1971.

Ms. Hazzard has been nominated for The Bay of Noon, her beautiful and evocative novel about a young woman who flees to Naples to escape her past.

The shortlist will be announced in March, and the reading public will decide the winner by voting on the Man Booker Prize website. The winner will be announced in May.
