The head of books at England’s Daily Telegraph Newspaper has been chosen to oversee the Man Booker Prize.  Gaby Wood, who has run the newspaper’s fiction coverage for the past five years, will take over as the award’s literary director after this year’s ceremony.  She was a judge in 2011 and her father, the author and academic Michael Wood, is this year’s chair of judges.  Booker Prize Foundation chairman Jonathan Taylor says Wood will bring new perspectives while maintaining the mission to bring the best of contemporary literary fiction to an ever widening international audience.  The winner, who receives more than $90,000 (CAD), will be announced in October.
