man-booker-prize-2017-shortlisted-books-authorsAuthors from UK and US dominated the 2017 Man Booker Prize shortlist announced on 13th September, as the only long-listed Indian writer, Arundhati Roy, failed to make the cut. Roy, who won the literary award worth 50,000 pounds for her debut book ‘The God of Small Things’ in 1997, had featured on the long-list for her latest novel ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’. However she did not make it to the short-list.
The short-list includes American authors Paul Auster for “4321”, Emily Fridlund for “History of Wolves”, and George Saunders for “Lincoln in the Bardo”. The British authors include Pakistan-born Mohsin Hamid for “Exit West”, Fiona Mozley for “Elmet” and Ali Smith for “Autumn”. The final six will now battle for the coveted award to be announced on October 17 at Guildhall.
