Man Booker Prize Shortlist

The Man Booker Prize Shortlist was announced yesterday. I'm bummed because neither Claire Messud nor Naeem Murr made the list . . .

Desai, Kiran The Inheritance of Loss - Hamish Hamilton
Grenville, Kate The Secret River - Canongate
Hyland, M.J. Carry Me Down - Canongate
Matar, Hisham In the Country of Men - Viking
St Aubyn, Edward Mother’s Milk - Picador
Waters, Sarah The Night Watch - Virago

The winner will be announced in October.

I'd expected to see Claire Messud's The Emperor's Children on the short list, too, Cliff.
