Booker Shortlist Announced

The Man Booker Shortlist has been announced today and I can say that there were a couple of surprises since not only Alan Hollinghurst and The Stranger's Child has been left out, but also Sebastian Barry with his extremely well-written On Canaan's Side. Anyway, here's the list:

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes
Jamrach's Menagerie by Carol Birch
The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt
Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman. Here's my review of the book... 
Snowdrops by AD Miller
