Brit Wins German Literary Award

British author Alexandra Fuller was awarded the prestigious Lettre Ulysses Award in Berlin Saturday for her book, "Scribbling the Cat," an account of her travels with a Rhodesian mercenary who revisits the places he fought. Fuller was one of seven writers, broadcasters and journalists from around the world who had been short-listed for the award. Her book earned her praise from the ten- member-strong international jury as "a spellbinding literary accomplishment. The dramatic, violent story of war which takes place in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, explores the soul of a mercenary. Fuller, who lives in the US, was unable to attend the award ceremony. The prize carries an award of 50,000 euros ($60,000).
