2006 Man Booker Prize Lead-In

With the winner of the 2006 Man Booker prize due to be announced Wednesday morning, Melbourne time, "The Age" catches up with Kate Grenville and M.J. Hyland. Neither thinks they are going to win it. The bookmaker Betfair has Waters at $1.84, Grenville at $4.50, Hyland $4.50, St Aubyn $5.70, Desai $7.40, and Matar at $10.00. (Each payout for a $1 bet presumably.) Which makes Waters at better than even money. Nah, too short.
