Booker Prize 2023

Prophet Song by Paul Lynch has been named the winner of the Booker Prize 2023.  The author receives £50,000.00 and was presented with his trophy by the 2022 winner.

Exhilarating, terrifying, propulsive and confrontational, Prophet Song is a work of breathtaking originality and devastating insight, a novel that can be read as a parable of the present, the future and the past.⁠

Lynch is the fifth Irish author to win the Booker Prize. Paul Lynch said of the book, ‘Prophet Song is partly an attempt at radical empathy. I wanted to deepen the reader’s immersion to such a degree that by the end of the book, they would not just know, but feel this problem for themselves’.
