The Man Booker Prize (created as the Booker McConnell Prize and previously known as the Booker Prize) is an annual award for the best original English-language novel published in the United Kingdom.

When the prize was originally established, only works written by citizens of Commonwealth countries, Ireland and South Africa were eligible to receive it. Works written by citizens of Zimbabwe later became eligible for the award also. In 2014, all restrictions on which authors were eligible to receive the prize were lifted. Any novel written in English and published in the United Kingdom can now be considered for the award.In 2016, Paul Beatty became the first American to win the Man Booker Prize.

Each year, the prize committee releases its "short list" of novels considered for the award. The "long list" is sometimes released also.
