Check out 2018's short list for The Man Booker Prize!
Once again, the Man Booker Prize presents a feast of first class new reading with this morning’s revelation of the 2018 shortlist. One or two longlist favourites have fallen (both Sally Rooney’s second book Normal People, former Booker-winner Michael Ondaatje’s Warlight, and Nick Drnaso’s Sabrina, the first graphic novel to appear on a Man Booker longlist), but every title remaining brims with something fresh and remarkable.
From veteran talent Richard Powers compelling us to consider nature in a profoundly new way to Daisy Johnson (in what is her debut novel) taking English myth and rendering it modern, once again the Man Booker jury provide a shortcut to the finest of the year’s contemporary fiction.
The ultimate winner of this year’s Man Booker Prize will be revealed on the evening of Tuesday 16 October.
