The book of the Canadian trailer revolves around the tale of love which conflicts with World War II was awarded in the fiction category after winning through a public vote.

The novel - which was adapted into an Oscar-winning 1996 movie starring Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche - was judged to be the best victor of the 52 books to have won the prestigious award. "As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the prize, it demonstrates the impact and legacy of the man Booker prize, because all the winning books are still pechatayutsya", said Fund Chairman of the Booker prize Baroness Helena Kennedy.
