Oneworld had a second Man Booker Prize winner in a row with Paul Beatty’s The Sellout, following their 2015 success, A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James.

The problems—and solutions—of digitization are more complex than the question of e-books vs. print books. By and large, that divide has stabilized; print books are clearly still a strong part of the market, and e-books have their attributes (instantaneous purchase, no bundles to lug around, changeable font size).
