The Man Booker Prize For 2015

This year’s Man Booker Prize for Best Novel goes to Marlon James for A Brief History Of Seven Killings, a fictionalized account of the attempted murder years ago of reggae star Bob Marley.

All of this year’s nominees seem to me to have been excellent ones.  The short list would thus be a fine and manageable list for our own reading.  A little bit later in the month, I’ll have something more substantial to say about a couple of the nominees.
