It's high awards season. Here are just a few award winning titles and authors announced in the last week:

My personal favorite, the Booker Prize went to White Tiger by Aravind Adiga. Click here to read an interview with the author from the Book Group Buzz Blog by Booklist Online.

The Anthony Award winners (mystery), presented last weekend at Buchercon 2008 can be found here. This list has the nominees and the winners. I would especially like to highlight the winner for best website, my favorite mystery resource Stop You're Killing Me.

The 2008 Nobel Prize in literature went to
Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio. He was cited as being an "author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization."

Finally, Larry Doyle won the 2008 Thurber Prize for American Humor.

Now to get you ready for the next round of awards, here is an article about the short-list for the Giller Prize for Canadian Fiction.
