Booker Shortlist

The Booker shortlist has just been announced :

Peter Carey for Parrot and Olivier in America

Emma Donoghue for Room

Damon Galgut for In A Strange Room

Howard Jacobson for The Finkler Question

Andrea Levy for The Long Song

Tom McCarthy for ‘C’

A couple of rooms, a question, a long song and a singular letter! And Carey of course.

I'm not at all bowled over by this little lot. It's all a bit too predictable.
