The Booker is not a national award. It is open to the Commonwealth and just about any English-speaking nation besides the USA (not sure why that is). That's why you have Margaret Atwood, Roddy Doyle, and JM Coetzee winning. DBC Pierre is an Australian national I believe, who grew up a bit in Mexico and now lives in Ireland. There's a whole lot about his life story in the UK broadsheets archives.

Charlie Williams.
