Mexico's Carmen Boullosa wins Spanish novel prize

Mexican writer Carmen Boullosa was awarded Spain's Cafe Gijón Novel Prize on Thursday for "El complot de los románticos."
The decision of the jury, headed by Spanish writer Rosa Regas, was announced shortly after midday at the emblematic Cafe Gijón artists' cafe in the Spanish capital.
One of oldest Spanish literary awards, the Cafe Gijón Novel Prize was established in 1949 by actor Fernando Fernan Gómez - who died last year at the age of 86 - and is organized by the local government of the northern city of Gijón.
The winning author receives a cash prize of 18,000 euros and earns the right to have his or her work published in Spain by Ediciones Siruela.
"El complot de los románticos" beat out 600 other novels - an amount more than double the previous year because online submissions were allowed - to win the prize.
A native of Mexico City who currently is a lecturer at the City College of New York, where she has lived since 2001, the 54-year-old Boullosa is a novelist, poet and playwright whose work addresses feminist concerns and gender roles within a Latin American context.
Previous winners of the Cafe Gijón prize include Carmen Martin Gaite, Eduardo Mendicutti, Luis Mateo Díez and Fernando Quiñones.
