Where better to catch the announcement of the Booker Prize winner than in the Frankfurter Hof? Berlin Verlag threw a party last night, and the live broadcast of the announcement was enough to quiet the excited crowd. Cheers went up from the winner’s publisher, glasses clinked, and then the party continued. See Chad’s write-up here.
Aravind Adiga won the award for his novel, The White Tiger.
