Booker Shortlist Announced this week!

8 Sep

The 2010 Shortlist was announced yesterday, before we’d even managed to decide which one of the longlist we wanted to read! So the finalists are:

Parrot and Olivier in America by Peter Carey (Faber and Faber)

Room by Emma Donoghue (Picador – Pan Macmillan)

In a Strange Room by Damon Galgut (Atlantic Books)

The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson (Bloomsbury)

The Long Song by Andrea Levy (Headline Review)

C by Tom McCarthy (Jonathan Cape – Random House)

The bookie’s favourite is apparently Tom McCarthy, but who knows who the judges will pick in October?
