Milkman book cover by Anna Burns

Milkman by Anna Burns


The winner of the Man Booker Booker Prize for Fiction 2018, Anna Burns, draws on her own experiences during Northern Ireland's "troubles" to write her novel, Milkman. The story is told through the eyes of an 18-year-old girl who is trying to avoid the dangerous attentions of a paramilitary figure known as the Milkman. (NPR News 10/16/2018)

Milkman is a story of the way inaction can have enormous repercussions, in a time when the wrong flag, wrong religion, or even a sunset can be subversive. Told with ferocious energy and sly, wicked humor, Milkman establishes Anna Burns as one of the most consequential voices of our day. (Publisher - Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
