The Booker Prize shortlist was announced today, in a recent reading spate, I guessed 2 from 4 – thats:
The Fortune Men, Nadifa Mohamed (Viking, Penguin General, PRH)
No One is Talking About This, Patricia Lockwood (Bloomsbury Circus, Bloomsbury Publishing)
Can I sayI’m sorry for the two I read that didnt get there, the excellent Light Perpetual Francis Spufford (Faber) and A Town Called Solace Mary Lawson (Chatto & Windus, Vintage
So can I beat this Jury? Is this really them?
2 left to read before my official announcement, tune in for the winner.
Richard Powers: Bewilderment
Great Circle: Maggie Shipstead:
A Passage North: Anuk Arudpragasam:
Damon Galgut: The Promise
Can The official jury find this winner? I doubt it!
