Barbara Kingsolver Wins £30,000 Orange Prize

bk23.pngNovelist Barbara Kingsolver (pictured) has won the Orange Prize for Fiction for The Lacuna. In 1999, her novel The Poisonwood Bible was shortlisted for the prestigious prize.

The Orange Prize carries a £30,000 award, and winners receive a bronze figurine nicknamed the “Bessie.” Last year, Marilynne Robinson won the prize for her third novel, Home.

Judicial chair Daisy Goodwin had this statement: “We chose The Lacuna because it is a book of breathtaking scale and shattering moments of poignancy.”
