 Austrian Literature Prize Won By Ireland's John Banville

The government said that the Irish author John Banville is to be awarded the Austrian state prize for European literature in July while praising the novelist's "unconventional" style.

Banville "is an unconventional author who always surprises us with his themes and his complex characters," fitting into the "tradition of great European authors, tackling profound questions about life," Culture Minister Claudia Schmied said.
