Barbara Kingsolver - Orange Prize Winner

Barbara Kingsolver won the Orange Prize this year for The Lacuna - her first published novel in nine years.

"We chose 'The Lacuna' because it is a book of breathtaking scale and shattering moments of poignancy. We had very different tastes on the panel, but in the end we went for passion, not compromise." -Daisy Goodwin, chair of the judges
