  • Description:   On Sep18, Jonathan Taylor, chairman of the Booker Prize Foundation, announced a change in the rules. Historically the prize has been open to a citizen of the UK, the British Commonwealth of Nations, the Republic of Ireland, or Zimbabwe for a book published in the UK in the English language during the year of the award. Though there may be other English-language authors besides the Americans who were ineligible, it is hard to think of where they might come from. In the Company of Men, by Hisham Matar, was shortlisted in 2007 despite its author's being a Libyan. So it was probably correct that the (Man) Booker welcomed everyone writing in English except US writers. Here, Mosely talks about the changes in the character of the award.
