The shortlist for the prestigious Man Booker is out, but I’ve read only one – Ruth Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being. Of course I plan to read Jhumpa Lahiri’s Lowland, hoping it will be as amazing as her others, but its publication date for my area is late September. The other four that make up the list of 6:
- The Testament of Mary by Colm Tobin
- Harvest by Jim Crace
- The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton
- We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo
Have you read any on the list?
