Man Booker Prize: Short List Announced

The short list for the Man Booker Prize was announced last week.

The six titles shortlisted are:

  • Darkmans by Nicola Barker (Fourth Estate)
  • The Gathering by Anne Enright (Jonathan Cape)
  • The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid (Hamish Hamilton)
  • Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones (John Murray)
  • On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan (Jonathan Cape)
  • Animal’s People by Indra Sinha (Simon & Schuster)
For the full story, here's the link:

The above titles that are underlined, link directly to our library catalog. You can click on them to see if they're checked in. If they're checked out, you can put them on hold.

I've put in an order for two of the books: The Gathering and Mister Pip. With any luck, they'll be added to the collection within the next month or so.

And as best I can tell, the other two titles, Darkmans and Animal's People have not been published in the U.S.A. yet.

Both "Darkmans" and "Animal's People" can be ordered on The British Bookies were, the last time I looked, giving the best odds to "Animal's People" over "On Chesil Beach."
