Remains of the day, Booker edition

This post was written by regular Friday blogger Annie Reid.

Some more responses on the Booker long list:

  • Canada is pissed.
  • In the Guardian, DJ Taylor contemplates the problems of so many big heavyweights one wee list.
  • MOTEV — possibly my favorite literary commentator of all time — gives her take on the long list.
  • A former Booker judge provides synopsis of all the nominees and dishes some dirt on the chair of the judging committee, John Sutherland, calling Sutherland’s comments in the wake of previous Booker awards, “brazen”, “bizarre” and “distorted.” (Ripped off from Bookninja – happy anniversary, Ninjas!)
