Russian Booker Prize Goes to Librarian

Winner of the Russian Booker-2008 competition has been awarded in Moscow. The first prize of 20 thousand dollars goes to the young writer Mikhail Yelizarov, the author of the mystic novel Librarian.
      The jury members noted that the book is written with sense of humor and really comes near ones heart.
      The message of the book is how to turn a cowardly and a good-for-nothing man into a true hero. Mikhail Yelizarov said he made a common librarian to be a man. He also added that he had been writing the novel in between his direct work.
      This year a record number of works - 91 - were nominated for the competition. Within 17 years of existence of Russian Booker among its winners there were Bulat Okudzhava, Vladimir Makanin, Lyudmila Ulitskaya, Vasily Aksyonov, and other famous men of letters.
