Six Booker nominees without heavyweight competition Automatic translate
LONDON. The short list of the Booker Prize included six authors.
One of the main events of the literary September is the final stage of the literary marathon called the Booker Prize. After the short list was announced, six nominees who got into it had a month ahead of excitement and forecasts. The intrigue will continue until October 25, when the winner is announced. Now everyone has a hypothetical chance of getting £ 50,000. Among the lucky ones are David Szalay, British writer of Canadian origin, Ottessa Moshfegh and Paul Beatty from the USA, Madeleine Thien from Canada, Deborah Levy and Graham Macri Barnet (Graeme Macrae Burnet) from the UK. Russian readers can get acquainted with the works of nominees only in the original language. The jury left a short list of literary heavyweights - American Elizabeth Strout and John Maxwell Coetzee from South Africa. The first in 2009 became the Pulitzer Prize laureate, in 2010 - the Remio Bancarella Prize for the storybook "Olive Kitteridge" (Olive Kitteridge). Coetzee is twice a Booker winner (1983 and 1999) and a 2003 Nobel Prize winner.
All That Man Is by David Salai, who is compared to Updike and Flaubert - nine characters and nine stories bizarrely interwoven into one unusual novel. Hypnotic and powerful Hot Milk Deborah Levy. The south of Spain, a beach house, a woman confined to a wheelchair, her difficult relationship with her daughter, a broken vase as a symbol of life shattered to pieces. Paul Beatty’s hilarious The Sellout is about a man advocating the return of slavery and racial segregation. Humor Beatty, in the apt expression of actress Sarah Silverman, working in the stand-up genre, is similar to anesthesia during surgery. Do Not Say We Have Nothing Madeleine Thien is dedicated to musicians who are victims of the “cultural revolution” in China. Otessa Moshfeig’s Eileen is a psychological thriller about a lonely young woman involved in a criminal story. Barnet’s His Bloody Project is a novel about a series of murders committed in the mid-19th century.
