AC GraylingProfessor AC Grayling, philosopher and popular writer, has been named as chairman of judges for this year’s Man Booker Prize.

Due to the introduction of (controversial) new rules this year, namely the admittance of US authors for the award, Professor Grayling will lead the panel alongside an extra judge to cope with the influx of writers.

In an official statement as lead judge, Professor Grayling explained that “[the] Man Booker prize has become an even bigger entity this year, with all fiction in English published worldwide between October 2013 and October 2014 now joining the competition.┬áThe challenge for my fellow judges and me is an exciting one, and I’m delighted to have such an outstanding group of people to work with in this highly significant year for the prize.”
