Booker Prize Group

Group Description

Welcome!  Our discussion starts on the 15th of the month, and continue until the 14th of the following month.


 No spoiler warnings are needed; each participating member is presumed to have completed the book - or nearly so - at the start of the discussion period.

We read one novel a month, choosing from among the long-listed, short-listed and winning authors of the Man Booker Prize as well as the Man Booker International if desired.  We read all of the shortlisted novels for the previous year's Booker Prize at two month intervals, selecting the books to be discussed in the intervening months by poll.
