De Niro’s Game wins international prize

Rawi Hage has won this year’s IMPAC Dublin Award! His novel De Niro’s Game (about two young men caught in Lebanon’s civil war) is the second book by a Canadian to win the $155,000 award (Alistair MacLeod won for No Great Mischief). One nice feature of this award is that the books are nominated by librarians; De Niro’s Game was nominated by the Winnipeg Public Library.
