Commonwealth Writers Prize Winners

I posted earlier about the longlist and shortlist for this prize, so I should probably post about the winners too really!

The winner for Overall Best Book was Lawrence Hill's The Book of Negroes, which apparently has been published in Australia under the title of Someone Knows My Name. Why do publishers change book names in different countries? It is very confusing.

The Overall Best First Book prize was awarded to Tahmima Anam of Bangladesh for A Golden Age.

My library has A Golden Age, but no sign of Hill's book under either title!
