Kate Atkinson's ‘Life After Life’ Wins Not-the-Booker Prize

The Guardian has named the recipient of its annual Not-the-Booker Prize, and despite it being a prize created in response to the Booker’s controversial choices, the 2013 winner was not the reader’s choice. Kate Atkinson’s Life After Life was chosen by a judging committee made up of blogger and book reviewer Simon Savidge, writer and researcher Simon Moore, and TV producer Victoria James; Guardian readers voted overwhelmingly in favor of Zoe Venditozzi’s Anywhere's Better Than Here. Atkinson will receive a special “Not the Booker” commemorative mug.
