Complete list of Man Booker Prize Winners since 1969

The Man Booker Prize is a prestigious literary award for the best novel of the year – written in English and published in the United Kingdom.

Started in 1969, the aim of the prize was to increase the reading of quality fiction and to attract “the intelligent general audience”. In this spirit I hope to one day read all of these winners. To date I’ve read just 16 of the 51 titles.
