Best of the Booker

I just heard of an interesting award: the best award winners.

What am I talking about? The Booker Prize is marking its 40th anniversary this year and so the Booker powers that be have decided to hold a Best of the Bookers contest. Readers will be able to vote for “the greatest Booker prize winner of all time” at the Man Booker prize website and results will be announced in July.

The shortlist:

Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie

Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee

The Siege of Krishnapur by J.G. Farrell

• “The Conservationist” by Nadine Gordimer

• The Ghost Road by Pat Barker

Oscar and Lucinda by Peter Carey
