Man Booker Prize Short List

Short ListI’m a fan of the Man Booker Prize, and I usually try to read at least the winning book each year and sometimes a few of the finalists. I haven’t been keeping up very well, lately, though, and the short list has rolled around again, announced here. Hilary Mantel is the favorite, having won for her previous book a few years ago.

 

 

Here’s the list:

Tan Twan EngThe Garden of Evening Mists (Myrmidon Books)
Deborah LevySwimming Home (And Other Stories/Faber & Faber)
Hilary MantelBring up the Bodies (Fourth Estate)
Alison MooreThe Lighthouse (Salt)
Will SelfUmbrella (Bloomsbury)
Jeet ThayilNarcopolis (Faber & Faber)
