This year’s Booker Prize shortlist has been announced. The list looks really good and looks much better than previous years. The titles are:
- The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt
- Summertime by J.M. Coetzee
- Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
- The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
- The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
The entire list is now on my TBR list. They all sound fascinating particularly The Children’s Book. Wolf Hall probably has the best cover. However, the list appears to favour more prominent and established authors – or perhaps that a coincidence.
