Midnight's Children wins Best of the Booker

Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children has just been named the winner of the Best of the Booker award. The six shortlisted titles were chosen by a panel of judges, and the decision then went to a public poll. Midnight's Children won with 36% of the vote.

This is the third time Midnight's Children has won a "Booker", after it won the 1981 Booker Prize and the Booker of Bookers in 1993.
