Another year, another shortlist of Man Booker Prize nominees I haven’t read. Shameful!
Here’s the list for the prestigious award:
“The Sellout,” Paul Beatty (from the U.S.)
“Hot Milk,” Deborah Levy (UK)
“His Bloody Project,” Graeme Macrae Burnet (UK)
“Eileen,” Ottessa Moshfegh (US)
“All That Man Is,” David Szalay (Canada-UK)
“Do Not Say We Have Nothing,” Madeleine Thien (Canada)
Beatty’s satire “The Sellout” won last year’s National Book Critics Circle’s fiction award. The Man Booker winner will be announced Oct. 25 in London.
