To be more precise, there are Whitbread awards for best novel, best first
novel, best biography, best book of poetry, and best children's book. Each
of them is worth 2000 pounds, except for children's book, which is worth
10,000 pounds. There is also an overall award chosen from the winners, which
is the book of the year, and this wins 21,000 pounds in addition.
Whitbread, which sponsors the award, is one of the biggest breweries in
for more information.
