Ruth Ozeki wins U.K. Women's Prize for Fiction.

Ruth Ozeki has won the 2022 Women’s Prize for Fiction for her novel "The Book of Form and Emptiness" (Penguin), about a thirteen-year-old boy who, after the tragic death of his father, starts to hear the voices of objects speaking to him.

The prize, now in its 27th year, is given for "outstanding, ambitious, original fiction written in English by women from anywhere in the world." It was announced at an awards ceremony in Bedford Square Gardens, central London, on June 15, hosted by novelist, playwright and Women’s Prize Founder Director Kate Mosse.

Ozeki received a £30,000 ($36,500) prize, endowed by an anonymous donor, and the "Bessie," a limited-edition bronze figurine by Grizel Niven.
