Booker Shortlist Announced

Here's the list:

The Children's Book by A S Byatt (Random House, Chatto and Windus)
Summertime by J M Coetzee (Random House, Harvill Secker)
The Quickening Maze by Adam Fould (Random House, Jonathan Cape)
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (HarperCollins, Fourth Estate)
The Glass Room by Simon Mawer (Little, Brown)
The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters (Little, Brown, Virago)

I read The Little Stranger, which gave me enjoyable chills, and The Children's Book is obviously on my to-read list. I suspect I won't get through the others before the winner is announced on October 6.
