Comments from the Judging Panel
‘Reading this book is an immersive experience. Once experienced, Anna Burns’ Milkman will never be forgotten. The reader becomes the world of the book. There was simply no other novel like it on the longlist. Many novels come and go but this tour-de-force is a remarkable achievement. We read it with huge admiration and gratitude. When we finished it, we felt enriched, informed, wiser.’

‘A description of what this original book is about fails to do it justice. Its brilliance lies in its compelling, questioning voice, its strong individual, resilient narrator, its evocation of place, its threatening and sinister atmosphere, its description of what Burns calls lives of ‘nervous caution.’

‘Milkman soon emerged as a frontrunner and naming it our eventual winner was a unanimous decision.’

‘The sinister, edgy and uncertain world of Anna Burns’s Milkman, as captured through a mature eighteen-year-old Middle Sister’s consciousness is both a challenging and hugely rewarding original work. Though set in an unnamed Belfast during the Troubles, it is a convincing and disturbing description of anywhere threatening and violent, of a place where religion, politics and geography determine how people must live their lives. In Burns’s narrator’s distinctive, sane and humorous voice, the novel explores a young woman’s attempt to assert her individuality, resist the imposed, claustrophobic pressure of a rumour-filled and menacing male-dominated world, value the truth, negotiate love and believe in a future.’

About the Novel
In an unnamed city, where to be interesting is dangerous, an eighteen-year-old woman has attracted the unwanted and unavoidable attention of a powerful and frightening older man, ‘Milkman‘. In this community, where suggestions quickly become fact, where gossip and hearsay can lead to terrible consequences, what can she do to stop a rumour once it has started? Milkman is persistent, the word is spreading, and she is no longer in control . . .

Milkman was published to critical acclaim in 2018 and went on to win the Man Booker Prize in that year.

About the Author
Anna Burns was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She is the author of three novels, No Bones, Little Constructions and Milkman, and of the novella, Mostly Hero. No Bones won the Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize and was short-listed for the Orange Prize for Fiction. She lives in East Sussex, England.

Librarian’s Comments
A report from the seventies amidst Northern Ireland troubles, authentic, thrilling, in parts deeply funny: we follow a young woman for whom violence both from politics and society seems natural. “Middle sister” the unnamed main character, manages to stand up to sexual harassment and neighbourhood watch. “Reading while walking”, she is an outsider with a sharp sight for humanity thus gaining resilience. Stadtbücherei Frankfurt am Main, Germany

This novel was an immersion into the Author’s created world that drew the reader in immediately. The style used created a narrative flow that reflected the subject and made it memorable without being dense. It’s an engaging and compelling story. Limerick City & Council Libraries, Ireland

A complex exploration of totalitarian politics and adolescence colliding, cast in a stream of consciousness form that manages to be both shocking and wry.  Redbridge Libraries, England

Set in Ireland during The Troubles, this energetic, subversive story is both an account of the mayhem suffered by the citizens of an unnamed city during those days and a tender, introspective examination of a young girl’s adolescence. Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, USA

评审团的评论
阅读这本书是一种身临其境的体验。一旦经历过,安娜-伯恩斯的《牛奶人》将永远不会被遗忘。读者成为书中的世界。在长名单上,根本没有其他小说能与之相比。许多小说来来去去,但这本游记是一个了不起的成就。我们怀着极大的钦佩和感激之情阅读了它。当我们读完它时,我们感到充实、知情、明智。

描述这本原版书的内容并不能使它公正。它的光彩在于其引人注目的、质疑的声音,其强大的个人、坚韧的叙述者,其对地方的唤起,其威胁和险恶的气氛,其对伯恩斯所说的 "紧张谨慎 "生活的描述。

牛奶人》很快就成为领跑者,将其命名为我们的最终赢家是一个一致的决定。

安娜-伯恩斯的《挤奶工》中的险恶、前卫和不确定的世界,通过一个18岁的成熟的中年妇女的意识捕捉到的,既是一部具有挑战性又有巨大价值的原创作品。虽然故事发生在动乱时期一个不知名的贝尔法斯特,但它对一个威胁和暴力的地方,对一个宗教、政治和地理决定人们必须如何生活的地方进行了令人信服和不安的描述。在伯恩斯的叙述者独特、理智和幽默的声音中,小说探讨了一位年轻女性试图坚持自己的个性,抵制充满谣言和男性主导的世界所强加的、幽闭的压力,重视真相,谈判爱情和相信未来。

小说简介
在一个不知名的城市,有趣是危险的,一个18岁的女人吸引了一个强大而可怕的老男人 "挤奶工 "的不想要的和不可避免的注意。在这个社会中,建议很快就会成为事实,流言蜚语和传闻会导致可怕的后果,一旦谣言开始,她能做什么来阻止它呢?牛奶人锲而不舍,消息不断传出,而她已经无法控制了......。

牛奶人》于2018年出版,广受好评,并在当年获得了曼布克奖。

关于作者
安娜-伯恩斯出生在北爱尔兰贝尔法斯特。她是三部小说《无骨》、《小建筑》和《奶爸》的作者,以及长篇小说《大部分是英雄》的作者。无骨》赢得了威尼弗里德-霍尔特比纪念奖,并入围了奥兰治小说奖的候选名单。她住在英格兰的东萨塞克斯。

图书管理员的评论
这是一份来自七十年代北爱尔兰动乱时期的报告,真实、惊险,部分内容非常有趣:我们跟随一位年轻女性,对她来说,来自政治和社会的暴力似乎都是自然的。未命名的主角 "中妹 "设法抵制性骚扰和邻里监视。她 "边走边读",是一个对人性有敏锐洞察力的局外人,从而获得了复原力。德国美因河畔法兰克福Stadtbücherei博物馆

这部小说让人沉浸在作者创造的世界中,立即吸引了读者的注意力。所用的风格创造了一个反映主题的叙事流程,使其令人难忘而又不致太过密集。这是一个引人入胜和引人注目的故事。爱尔兰利默里克市图书馆和议会图书馆

对极权主义政治和青春期碰撞的复杂探索,以意识流的形式呈现,成功地做到了既震撼又睿智。 英国红桥图书馆

这部作品以爱尔兰动乱时期为背景,充满了活力和颠覆性,既描述了一个不知名城市的市民在那些日子里所遭受的混乱,又对一个年轻女孩的青春期进行了温柔而内省的考察。美国匹兹堡卡内基图书馆
