Organizers of the Booker Prize have recognized often-nominated Beryl Bainbridge with a posthumous "best of" award.

The special prize, which pitted Bainbridge’s five Booker-nominated books against each other in a "Best of Beryl" competition, went to "Master Georgie," a 1998 novel set during the Crimean War.

The prize’s literary director Ion Trewin called Bainbridge a "very gracious nonwinner" and said Tuesday that while she may have been the "eternal Booker Bridesmaid," at least Master Georgie had become a "Booker Bride."

The prize was set up after Bainbridge’s death last year from cancer. The book was picked through an online poll.
