Derby Day, D.J. Taylor (Chatto & Windus - Random House)

The shortlist will be released on 6 September and the winner announced on 18 October.

Comments: a number of new authors and publishers here.  No Australian that I've noticed. Hollinghurst has won before, and Barnes and Barry have been previously shortlisted.  I haven't been keeping an eye on the possibilities this year so I really have no idea who might get the gong.  Interestingly, The Guardian reports that Hollinghurst has been installed as 5-1 favourite by the bookmakers William Hill, though the actual site has it at 4-1.
