Marilynne Robinson Nominated for 2013 Man Booker International Prize

January 31, 2013

Workshop faculty member Marilynne Robinson has been nominated for the 2013 Man Booker International Prize. She is one of ten authors selected from around the world to the shortlist. The prize, awarded every two years to a living author who has published fiction either originally in English or whose work is available in translation into English, honors a lifetime's achievement in fiction writing, rather than one particular work.

Marilynne Robinson is the author of three books of fiction, Housekeeping, Gilead, and Home. Gilead was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2005, and Home was awarded the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2009.
