2012 Man Booker Prize Shortlist

| No TrackBacks
The shortlist for the 2012 Man Booker Prize has been released.  I don't think this prize needs much introduction these days, so the novels on the list are:

Tan Twan Eng, The Garden of Evening Mists (Myrmidon Books)
Deborah Levy, Swimming Home (And Other Stories/Faber & Faber)
Hilary Mantel, Bring up the Bodies (Fourth Estate)
Alison Moore, The Lighthouse (Salt)
Will Self, Umbrella (Bloomsbury)
Jeet Thayil, Narcopolis (Faber & Faber)

With only one author having been shortlisted previously (Mantel) and only one winner (again Mantel) it's a fresh look at the novel.  No Australians.  But there weren't any on the longlist either.

The winner will be announced on Tuesday 16 October.
