Shortlist Announced for the 2013 Man Booker Prize

10th September 2013 - 12 Midnight

The shortlist for the 2013 Man Booker prize has been announced, with Jim Crace emerging as the Bookies' favourite to win with his novel Harvest.
He is up against Colm Toibin, debut writer NoViolet Bulawayo, Ruth Ozeki, Jhumpa Lahiri and, the youngest writer on the list at 27, Eleanor Catton, with her second novel, The Luminaries.
Chair of the judges, Robert Macfarlane said of the shortlist: 'Global in its reach, this exceptional shortlist demonstrates the vitality and range of the contemporary novel at its finest. These six superb works of fiction take us from gold-rush New Zealand to revolutionary Calcutta, from modern-day Japan to the Holy Land of the Gospels, and from Zimbabwe to the deep English countryside. World-spanning in their concerns, and ambitious in their techniques, they remind us of the possibilities and power of the novel as a form.'
The winner will be announced at t Guildhall on October 15.
