Athens Prize for Literature
The Athens Prize for Literature is only in its second year, but looks fairly ambitious, and they've announced their prize-winners for this year (no press release out yet, but they were kind enough to let us know). They have an international category, in which Javier Cercas' The Speed of Light beat out Martin Amis, Sarah Waters, Uzodinma Iweala, Andrew O�Hagan, Jan Henrik Swahn, and Zsuzsa Bank.
Ioanna Bouratzopoulos won for best Greek novel, for What Lot�s Wife saw.
