The Booker Prize Shortlist has now been announced with a couple of surprises. Four debut novels are on the list, and people have shown surprise that Hilary has not made the list despite winning twice in the past.
The Booker Prize is the UK’s most prestigious literary award and is open to any novel written in English by an author of any nationality.
The shortlist is made up of six books picked from the original Booker Prize longlist, and you can see those below. The winner will be announced on 17th November.
