UK Booker Prize to Alan Hollinghurst
Britain's most prestigious literary prize was awarded to Alan Hollinghurst for The Line of Beauty, the first "gay novel" to be so recognized. Set in London in the 1980's, the story is told in three parts, Hollinghurst told the BBC. "The first part is a romance, the second one is more farcical and grotesque and the third one is more tragic in nature."
