Oh my poor neglected blog.
My MacBook recently kicked the bucket (RIP) and I don’t have the money (or the inclination) to drop $3000 on a new one. In consequence, my blog has suffered. But not my reading! I recently finished His Bloody Project which means I’ve completed the Booker Shortlist for 2016. See below for my ranking:
5. His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet
4. Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh
3. All That Man Is by David Szalay
2. Hot Milk by Deborah Levy
I wholeheartedly agree with the panel’s decision to award Beatty the prize – what an amazing entry for the first American winner.
I know this isn’t exactly topical but I wanted to share my thoughts and see what others thought of the shortlist as a whole. Please comment below! Agree with me, disagree with me, share recipes for Portuguese tarts, etc.
