My Booker Predictions

October 7, 2006

Booker Shortlist 2006

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:

  1. In the Country of Men – Hisham Matar
  2. The Inheritance of Loss – Kiran Desai
  3. The Night Watch – Sarah Waters
  4. The Secret River – Kate Grenville
  5. Mother’s Milk – Edward St Aubyn
  6. 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.
