International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award

The International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award may not be the most famous award around, but it does give an awful lot of money to the winner.  Better yet, it's administered by the Dublin, Ireland city libraries.  IMPAC is the corporate sponsor, of course -- the library does not come up with the money.  The award is open to books written in any language and nominations are made by libraries in capital and major cities throughout the world.  This year's winner is an American and Boston area native, Michael Thomas.  He's only published one novel so far, Man Gone Down, but let's hope he has a bright future.
