Back in July, we shared the 13 books that made the longlist for the Man Booker Prize 2013. This morning, the suspense thickened as that list was whittled down to a shortlist of only six:
We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo
The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton (U.S. release: October 15)
Harvest by Jim Crace
The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri (U.S. release: September 24)
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
The Testament of Mary by Colm Tóibín
We don't envy the judges tasked with selecting a winner out of this crop of stellar books! The winner will be announced on October 15. Which book are you rooting for?
