RANSOM awarded Criticos Prize

David Malouf was awarded the Criticos Prize, given to the author of an original work in English inspired by Greece or Hellenic culture. Malouf's novel, Ransom, a reimagining of Achilles' slaughter and desecration of Hector and King Priam's attempt to ransom his son's body is adapted from Homer's The Iliad. Recently honored in Athens, Malouf is the first Australian to receive the Criticos Prize and Ransom, his tenth novel, is the first novel to win the award. C.P. Cavafy's Collected Poems, translated by David Mendelsohn, was among the titles shortlisted for the prize.
