New Zealander Eleanor Catton has won the prestigious Man Booker Prize.
At 28, she becomes the youngest author to ever win the award and only the second person from New Zealand.
Her novel, The Luminaries, is set  in 1866 gold-rush Hokitika, and is a 832-page murder-mystery.
Speaking from the awards dinner in London, Catton said she was “just absolutely over the moon”.
She told Radio New Zealand hearing her book announced as the winner felt “like I’d been plunged into a bath of ice”.
