ORANGE PRIZE WINNER
Marilynne Robinson has won the 2009 Orange Prize for Fiction for her novel Home. The judges' decision was unanimous which is kind of cool, I think. It's certainly nice for Marilynne to know!
Fi Glover, chair of the judges siad: 'This year's Orange Prize winner has a luminous quality to it that has drawn all of the judges to a unanimous decision. The profound nature of the writing stood out, as has the ability of writer to draw the reader into a world of hope expectation, misunderstanding, love and kindness.'
