The Man Booker Prize has announced its shortlist! The longlist is now whittled down to just six titles.
In the announcement they said, “One previous winner, one thrice-shortlisted novelist, one Australian, two US authors and five imprints. This is what makes up the shortlist for this year’s Man Booker Prize for Fiction,.”
The shortlist is:
- To Rise Again at a Decent Hour by Joshua Ferris
- The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan
- J by Howard Jacobson
- The Lives of Others by Neel Mukherjee
- We are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler
- How to be Both by Ali Smith
I currently have five of the titles on the shortlist and have already read two, so you can guess what my next three books are right?… happy reading all!
