This year’s Man Booker prize judges (Stuart Kelly, Natalie Haynes, Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, Robert Macfarlane and Martha Kearney) have already read a daunting 151 titles and they have reached the first stage towards the winning post with the newly announced long list. Here’s the exciting mix of 13 novels – links to the ones we’ve got in stock already.
Further key dates are 10 September 2013 – Shortlist announcement; 15 October 2013 – Winner announcement.
The mix of titles is quite international and elclectic, looking forward to trying them
