OK, it’s not Fringe-related, I know, but some people just can’t let the publication of a Booker shortlist go by without comment. Not only did Irish lad Sebastian Barry get the nod again, this time over former winner Salman Rushdie, but the list also includes two books of over 700 pages, two first novels, two Brits, two Indians and one Australian. Oh, and six novels I haven’t yet read, but hope to before the winner is announced on October 14th. I’ll keep y’all posted (I can tell you’re on the edges of yizzer seats), but in the meantime, here’s an interesting piece about Booker judging over the years as a little antidote to Fringosity.
Early predictions welcome, if not taken altogether seriously.
