Naipul represented the '70s, 'Moon Tiger" by Penelope Lively stood for the '80s, Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall was selected for the 2000s, and last year's victor Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders was chosen for the ongoing '10s.
At Golden Man Booker Live, judge Kamila Shamsie discussed why she had chosen The English Patient as her victor of the 1990s, before an extract of the book was performed by actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Michael Ondaatje was presented with his golden trophy.

"Ondaatje's imagination acknowledges no borders as it moves between Cairo, Italy, India, England, Canada - and between deserts and villas and bomb craters".
Novelist Kamila Shamsie, the jurist who selected the English Patient as a Golden Booker finalist, called the novel "transformative".
