The Booker Prize Shortlist has been announced ...
Tan Twan Eng, The Garden of Evening Mists
Deborah Levy, Swimming Home
Hilary Mantel, Bring up the Bodies
Alison Moore, The Lighthouse
Will Self, Umbrella
Jeet Thayil, Narcopolis
I've read the Mantel and wasn't surprised to see it on the list. I have never heard of the others and will be rushing to the library website after I post to put these on hold.
Last year a shortlisted book won the TOB???
