News from this week's Communiqué
Lydia Davis, author of The Cows, among others, has won the 2013 Man Booker International Prize. The Man Booker International Prize is awarded every two years and is bestowed on a writer who has contributed "an achievement in fiction on the world stage" and whose work can be found in English or through a widely printed translation. Sir Christopher Ricks, chair of the judging panel, said, "There is vigilance to her stories, and great imaginative attention. Vigilance as how to realize things down to the very word or syllable; vigilance as to everybody's impure motives and illusions of feeling."
