2005 Man Booker Prize Shortlist Announced

The Shortlisted novels for the 2005 Man Booker Prize have been announced. That list is:

The Sea by John Banville
Arthur & George by Julian Barnes
A Long Long Way by Sebastian Barry
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Accidental by Ali Smith
On Beauty by Zadie Smith

All books are from major publishers this year with Hamish Hamilton and Faber & Faber having two books on the list each.

Ishiguro is the only previous winner of the award. My guess is that it will be a contest between Banville and Barnes.

The winner will be announced on Monday 10th October.
