"Even the Dogs, by Jon McGregor, has been announced as the winner of the 2012 International Impac Dublin Literary Award and its €100,000 prize. He beat competition from 146 other titles nominated by 162 public libraries from 45 countries for the accolade.
Mr McGregor was born in Bermuda and raised in England and is the author of two other critically acclaimed novels. Even the Dogs is described as a fearless experiment which details the lives of a gathering of homeless addicts as they go about their daily forage for shelter, drink or a fix."
