AWARD DATE: 2019
AWARD NAME: 14 The Cornelius Ryan Award 2019
AWARD RECIPIENT: Katherine Eban
AWARD RECIPIENT AFFILIATION: Ecco/HarperCollins
AWARD HONORED WORK: “Bottle of Lies: Inside the Generic Drug Boom”
AWARD SPONSOR: Friends of Richard Threlkeld
Eban documents the massive fraud by which Indian drug makers have evaded a fumbling U.S. FDA to sell billions of dollars in unsafe and ineffective drugs to the U.S. This is a book that should inform and alarm the many millions of Americans (and their doctors) who use generic drugs.
