The Man Booker Prize 2018 [Shortlist]

The Man Booker Prize 2018 (Shortlist)
English | 6 Books | EPUB | 15 MB
Fiction

The Man Booker Prize was established in 1969. The winner receives £50,000 as well as the £2,500 awarded to each of the shortlisted authors. Both the winner and the shortlisted authors are guaranteed a worldwide readership plus an increase in book sales.
This year’s Man Booker judges must be the most independent and high-minded ever assembled — for the shortlist they have selected, from their already rather wacky longlist, will be the despair of booksellers.
The judges have surprisingly dropped the two novels that looked to be the strongest contenders and have already proved the most popular among readers —Warlight by Michael Ondaatje and Normal People , the rapturously reviewed second novel by young Irish writer Sally Rooney, which sold an impressive 5,495 copies last week.

List:
1. Milkman by Anna Burns
2. Washington Black by Esi Edugyan
3. Everything Under by Daisy Johnson
4. The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner
5. The Overstory by Richard Powers
6. The Long Take by Robin Robertson
