The Man Booker Prize shortlist 2018

Congratulations to the authors shortlisted for this year’s Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

Here is the full shortlist:

Chair of 2018 judges, Kwame Anthony Appiah, says: ‘All of our six finalists are miracles of stylistic invention. In each of them the language takes centre stage. And yet in every other respect they are remarkably diverse, exploring a multitude of subjects ranging across space and time. From Ireland to California, in Barbados and the Arctic, they inhabit worlds that not everyone will have been to, but which we can all be enriched by getting to know. Each one explores the anatomy of pain — among the incarcerated and on a slave plantation, in a society fractured by sectarian violence, and even in the natural world. But there are also in each of them moments of hope.’
