The shortlist for 2015 has been announced and the 6 contenders for the prize are:
A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James
Satin Island by Tom McCarthy
The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma
The Year of the Runaways by Sunjeev Sahota
A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
As with last year I intend to shadow the prize. I also have some other reviews that need publishing in the next few weeks as I’ve been neglectful of that for some time!
