Booker Follow-Up

Very well done outline of the six short listed titles for the Booker Prize on page 5 of today's Guardian Review by Sarah Churchwell.   She points out that the shortlist 'reflects the common wealth of many nations, many imaginations' but 'the nationalities or residences of the authors or the settings of their novels' are not 'sufficient to account for the intensity of feeling and intelligence of ideas represented by the books on this list'.   Clearly, there is some good reading here.
