The shortlist for the 2014 Man Booker Prize is out, and this year there’s a difference… for the first time, the nominations have been extended to any book written in English, rather than being restricted only to writers from the Commonwealth.
This opened up a whole new world of fiction that we, the lucky readers, will now get to savour!
The shortlisted books for this year’s prize are:
- To Rise Again at a Decent Hour – Joshua Ferris (US)
- The Narrow Road to the Deep North – Richard Flanagan (Australian)
- We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves – Karen Joy Fowler (US)
- J – Howard Jacobson (British)
- The Lives of Others – Neel Mukherjee (British)
- How to be Both – Ali Smith (British)
You can reserve each one by clicking on the title, or set yourself up for the next few months and reserve them all.
