  1. thanks for this. literary bloggers and talking about it. who do you think would win?

  2. I haven't read any of this. For some reason this year the Booker Prize shortlist doesn't excite me. I'm not a Coetzee lover and I haven't read anything from the other writers, but maybe there's a jewel in this list and I don't know...

  3. na wa o! this coetzee guy is keen on taking this thing again. o ga gan. byt A.S Byatt is my bet!

  4. I like Hilary Mantel though I've not read this book.
