Irish writer Anne Enright won the Man Booker fiction prize Tuesday for The Gathering, an uncompromising portrait of a troubled family. Enright had been a long-shot to take Britain's most prestigious, and contentious, literary trophy. The prize, which carries a check for 50,000 pounds, was awarded during a ceremony at London's medieval Guildhall.
