This year, Douglas Stuart's debut novel Shuggie Bain was announced as the winner of the 2020 Booker Prize. Chair of the Booker judges, Margaret Busby, described the book as 'destined to be a classic' and shared that it took just an hour for the judges to come to a unanimous decision.
Over the years we've been fortunate enough to have four of our authors claim the overall prize, as well as many more on the long and shortlists. So, to celebrate Douglas's inspirational win, we decided to take a look at some of our favourite past winners and nominees of the revered Booker Prize.
