2015 Man Booker Prize Longlist Prediction

For a bit of fun, here are my predictions for the 2015 Man Booker Prize long list, which will be announced at midday today.

I think that we’ll see four former winners on the list:

  • Margaret Atwood – The Heart Goes Last
  • Salman Rushdie – Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights
  • Anne Enright – The Green Road
  • Kazuo Ishiguro – The Buried Giant

As well as:

  • Hanya Yanagihara – A Little Life
  • Judith Claire Mitchell – A Reunion of Ghosts
  • Benjamin Wood – The Ecliptic
  • Jonathan Franzen – Purity
  • Ryan Gattis – All Involved
  • Sara Taylor – The Shore
  • Colm Toibin – Nora Webster
  • Anna Small – The Chimes
  • Sarah Hall – The Wolf Border

I’ll let you know how I did when the long list has been announced!


      1. I agree. I a made a pledge not to buy any more books until I cut my tbr pile but may have to break it to see if I can read and review some for the shortlist. are you going to read any?

      2. I’m in a similar position! But I’ll have to pick a few of them up – really intrigued by The Chimes and The Fishermen, and I’ve heard excellent things about A Little Life
