Man Booker Prize Fiction Shortlist

Peter Carey, Emma Donoghue, Damon Galgut, Howard Jacobson, Andrea Levy and Tom McCarthy are the six shortlisted authors for the 2010 Man Booker Prize for Fiction. For over four decades the prize – the leading literary award in the English speaking world – has brought recognition, reward and readership to the outstanding new novels of the year. The six books, selected from the Man Booker Prize longlist of 13, are:
Peter Carey Parrot and Olivier in America;
Emma Donoghue Room; Damon Galgut In a Strange Room; Howard Jacobson The Finkler Question; Andrea Levy The Long Song; and
Tom McCarthy C. Chair of judges Andrew Motion, comments: “It's been a great privilege and an exciting challenge for us to reduce our longlist of thirteen to this shortlist of six outstandingly good novels. In doing so, we feel sure we've chosen books which demonstrate a rich variety of styles and themes – while in every case providing deep individual pleasures.”
