Booker Prize Project

For the tenth year in a row, the University of St Andrews is working with the Booker Prize Foundation to celebrate great contemporary fiction and encourage new undergraduates to join with the wider St Andrews community in a shared conversation about literature and ideas.
 
This year’s St Andrews Booker Prize novel is His Bloody Project, by Scottish author Graeme Macrae Burnet, published by Contraband.
 
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2016, His Bloody Project is an artful and gothically compelling set of accounts about a remote crofting community in 19th-century Scotland rocked by three brutal murders. 

On Wednesday 28 November 2018, Graeme Macrae Burnet will be coming to St Andrews to talk about his work. Look out for further details about the event online and on social media in the coming few weeks.
 
Join in the conversation using #BookerSaints #standrewsconversations and follow the University of St Andrews on Facebook for event updates.
