At 832 pages, The Luminaries is also the longest work to win the prize in its 45-year history. The chair of the judges, Robert Macfarlane, commented, “It’s a dazzling work. It’s a luminous work. It is vast without being sprawling.”[/ezcol_1half_end]

 

[ezcol_1half]Isabel Allende: Allende’s novels are often based upon her personal experiences as a Chilean-American. Imbued with passion, her works combine sweeping narrative with elements of the “magic realist” tradition.
