The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje (Bloomsbury) has been crowned the best work of fiction from the last five decades of the Man Booker Prize, it was announced today (Sunday 8 July). The book of the Canadian trailer revolves around the tale of love which conflicts with World War II was awarded in the fiction category after winning through a public vote. The film adaptation starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Ralph Fiennes won nine Academy Awards in 1997, including best picture.
"The English Patient" won the Booker in 1992, but not outright.
Ondaatje, accepting the prize at the Man Booker Festival in London, didn't share Shamsie's enthusiasm about his novel, the Guardian reports.
A panel of judges selected five books from the 51 winners of the Booker Prize, with one from each decade.
"Not for a second do I believe this is the best book on the list or any other list that could have been put together of Booker novels", Ondaatje said at the awards ceremony at London's Southbank yesterday.
Ondaatje became the first Canadian to win the Booker Prize sharing the 1992 prize with British author Barry Unsworth and his historical novel "Sacred Hunger".
The other finalists were In A Free State by V S Naipaul for the 70s, Moon Tiger by Penelope Lively for the 80s, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel for the 2000s and Lincoln In The Bardo by George Saunders for the 2010s.
The English Patient was adapted into a film in 1996.
Shamsie said: "The English Patientis that rare novel which gets under your skin and insists you return to it time and again, always yielding a new surprise or delight".
"It moves seamlessly between the epic and the intimate one moment you're in looking at the vast sweep of the desert and the next moment watching a nurse place a piece of plum in a patient's mouth", she said.
"Few novels really deserve the praise: transformative".
Previous "Best of Bookers" surveys - carried out for the award's 25th and 40th anniversaries - were both won by Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children.
