The Booker Prize 2022 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida by Shehan Karunatilaka as the winner of the Booker Prize 2022.

At once mordantly funny and shot through with piercing truths, Karunatilaka's exuberant satire follows the eventful afterlife of the titular protagonist as he navigates civil war-torn Sri Lanka in search of some explosive photographs - and the identity of his killer.

 

“What the judges particularly admired and enjoyed in The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida was the ambition of its scope, and the hilarious audacity of its narrative techniques. This is a metaphysical thriller, an afterlife noir that dissolves the boundaries not just of different genres, but of life and death, body and spirit, east and west.”

Neil MacGregor, Chair of Judges
