Battersby on the Booker
Eileen Battersby gives her verdict on the shortlist here. I had the misfortune to begin working my way through the longlist starting with books that didn’t end up on the shortlist, so now I’m way behind (and still have to finish Me Cheeta). “Yesterday, and not for the first time, the Booker Prize looked in serious need of rescuing – from itself,” says Battersby. Y’all agree? What’s your take on the shortlist, and on past winners ? Personal favourite from the past ten years? I’ll go for Vernon God Little. You?
