The Booker Shortlist 2018

Today the Shortlist was announced for the 2018 Man Booker prize, consisting of:
  • Milkman by Anna Burns (UK)
  • Washington Black by Esi Edugyan (Canada)
  • Everything Under by Daisy Johnson
  • The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner (USA)
  • The Overstory by Richard Powers (USA)
  • The Long Take by Robin Robertson (UK)
So Nick Drnaso's graphic novel Sabrina has fallen off the list, as has Michael Ondaatje's Warlight which I though would have been a shoo-in.

The winner will be announced on 16 October 2018.

Here's what the judges had to say about the shortlist.
