Man Booker Prize Winner and Nominees

The 2017 Man Booker long list nominees have been announced after much discussion and deliberation amongst the panel of five judges, including literary critic Lila Azam Zanganeh and Man Booker Prize shortlisted novelist Sarah Hall.

Amanda Foreman, Chair of the judges, said the book managed 'to eviscerate every social taboo’ and that it was 'a novel for our times' that contained 'an absolutely savage wit'.
