Rushdie is Best of the Bookers

It's been reported elsewhere, but Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children has been named the greatest book of all friggin time, er Best of the Bookers. When Rushdie read at Vroman's, someone asked him to comment on winning the Booker for Midnight's Children. He quoted Kingsley Amis, who, upon winning the award late in his career for his (in my opinion) superb The Old Devils, commented "I've always hated this award, but I've just changed my mind."
