The 2006 Man Booker Prize

‹ Back to blog

The Longlist (19 books) is out for the Man Booker Prize, and boy do I want David Mitchell to win (he’s given a 6 to 1 chance by betting companies!). Peter Carey’s won it twice already, so honestly – that’s enough. And besides, he’s often overrated (sorry Carey fans). Even though Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas is much better than his latest, Black Swan Green, he’s a fantastic writer and should be honored as such.
