2016 Man Booker Prize Short List

The short list for this year’s Man Booker Prize was announced today, and contains an interesting mix of titles:

booker-shortlist-2016Three of these titles (His Bloody Project, The Sellout and Do Not Say We have Nothing) are from independent publishers, which I think is great to see.

My current view, and I reserve the right to change my mind, is that Do Not Say We Have Nothing will go on to claim this year’s prize.  That said, my predictions this year have been quite poor – I predicted none of the long list and only two of the short listed titles correctly – so I wouldn’t read too much into that!
