2013 Man Booker shortlist

Postby annis » Wed September 11th, 2013, 5:28 am

The 2013 Man Booker shortlist has been announced, and yet again historical fiction (of the more literary sort) features large. Three of the six titles listed could be counted as HF - Jim Crace's Harvest, Colm Toibin's Testament of Mary and Eleanor Catton's Luminaries ( which I'll be rooting for because the author's a Kiwi!).

More info at the Guardian with reviews of the shortlisted novels.

Harvest looks really good!
Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them. --Arnold Lobel
