2017 Man Booker Prize shortlist

Well, it’s not October yet, so we’ll count this post as ‘right on time’: here is this year’s Man Booker Shortlist!

4 3 2 1 – Paul Auster
History of Wolves – Emily Fridlund
Exit West – Mohsin Hamid
Elmet – Fiona Mozley
Lincoln in the Bardo – George Saunders
Autumn – Ali Smith

As far as sales go there’s not a clear front-runner yet.  Paul Auster is popular, of course, but that could also be because the paperback has been released early.  Ali Smith and Mohsin Hamid are also doing pretty well.

The winner will be announced on October 17th, so if you haven’t started reading these yet, no worries, you still have 3 weeks.  😉
