The Man Booker Prize will be announced this coming tuesday Oct 10th. I haven’t yet read any of the shortlisted books. However, my winning bets would be in this order:
- In the Country of Men – Hisham Matar
- The Inheritance of Loss – Kiran Desai
- The Night Watch – Sarah Waters
- The Secret River – Kate Grenville
- Mother’s Milk – Edward St Aubyn
- Carry Me Down – M. J. Hyland
The bookies favorite is Sarah Waters’ ‘The Night Watch’. Will have to wait for another three more days to see if my prediction will ring true.
