2010 Man Booker Prize Shortlist

The shortlisted novels for the 2010 Man Booker Prize have been announced.

The shortlisted works are:

Peter Carey, Parrot and Olivier in America (Faber and Faber)
Emma Donoghue, Room (Pan MacMillan - Picador)
Damon Galgut, In a Strange Room (Grove Atlantic - Atlantic Books)
Howard Jacobson, The Finkler Question (Bloomsbury)
Andrea Levy, The Long Song (Headline Publishing Group - Headline Review)
Tom McCarthy, C (Random House - Jonathan Cape)

Interesting to see that both Mitchell and Tsiolkas were dropped off the longlist.  If Carey wins he will be the first three-time winner.  He is also the only previous winner of the award on this year's shortlist.

The winner will be announced on Tuesday 12th October, 2010.
