Booker 2008 Shortlist

Well, that was fast. The shortlist for the 2008 Booker Prizes has already been announced:

The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga
The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry
Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh
The Clothes on Their Backs by Linda Grant
The Northern Clemency by Philip Hensher
A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz

Since The Enchantress didn’t make the list, people will probably remind John Sutherland of his promise.
