The Sunday Express Book of the Year also known as the The Sunday Express Fiction Award was awarded in the years from 1987 to 1993. It was intended to honour "novels of real quality that would also appeal to a wide, intelligent readership" as opposed to the "precious, pretentious, self-regarding, immensely dull and often unreadable" books which frequently won the Booker prize. It was worth £20,000 for the winner and £1,000 for each of the five shortlisted authors, making it the most lucrative fiction prize in Britain at the time.
