Booker Shortlist announced. . .

And the race is on! A very interesting shortlist, notable for Rushdie not making it, but a list that I really want to read in its entirety. I've only read The Northern Clemency so far in manuscript ( the edition that will be available in Canada is the U.S. edition which isn't scheduled to come out until next February - hopefully the shortlisting will move up the pub date - it's very good and is already one of my Dewey picks for spring).

However, the other five books are currently available. The short list is:
The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga
The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry
Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh
The Northern Clemency by Philip Hensher
