Eleanor Cattan became the youngest winner in the Man Booker Prize’s history at 28, winning over other literary hard-hitters like Jhumpa Lahiri and Colm Toibin. Her novel The Luminaries is a murder mystery set during the New Zealand gold rush, and has been praised for its mastery of storytelling and language, not to mention its great heft, weighing in at 848 pages. This is incontrovertible proof that 28 really is the year that changes everything. Check out this excerpt here and hustle to your nearest friendly bookseller, stat. [Reuters]
