Each year, through a variety of literary awards, the publishing world takes time to honor some of the writers whose outstanding efforts merit special recognition. The best known of these awards include the Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes for literature, but others less familiar such as the Man Booker Prize are considered by many to be equally as prestigious. As with any awards process, these literary prizes are not without controversy. Many outstanding titles are sometimes overlooked, but book enthusiasts everywhere use these awards lists to help decide what to read. We're pleased to feature a selection of current award winning titles, and give the gifted artists who created them our special accolades.
