18 October 2018 Current Affairs:

Anna Burns won the prestigious Man Booker Prize for fiction for Milkman, a vibrant, violent story about men, women, conflict and power set during Northern Ireland’s years of Catholic-Protestant violence. 

She is the first writer from Northern Ireland to win the £50,000 (Rs.48 lakh) prize, which is open to English-language authors from around the world. She said her books took a long time to complete, and she has often struggled financially since her first novel, No Bones, was released in 2001.
