Of Course The Booker Prize Should Be Open To The World's Writers! Sophie Hardach: "All over London, Spanish-staffed coffee chains sit next to West Indian chicken stalls and Turkish hairdressers. Britain is becoming more like America: a magnet to migrants from all over the world. This includes migrant writers, and not ones just from former colonies. The Booker's old criteria, then, were out of step with reality."
