Canadian-born New Zealander Eleanor Catton is the winner of the 2013 Man Booker prize. The prize goes to her second novel The Luminaries which takes place during New Zealand's late-19th century gold rush.

 The Man Booker prize is one of the most prestigious literary awards with a grand prize of £50,000 ($83,000 Cdn).

Because Catton was born in Canada she is also eligible for the Canadian Governor General's Award for fiction.
