2022 Booker Prize Shortlist

The shortlist of nominees for the 2022 Booker Prize has been announced:

Four of the books are available in the US currently; two others are not yet available in the country, but it's likely they'll find distribution here in the coming months.

Details are here. The winner will be announced October 17.


Fun fact: While 'The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida' does not yet have a US publisher, the author's earlier novel The Legend of Pradeep Mathew is available now. It was published in 2012 by Minnesota's own Graywolf Press, and they published 'The Trees' by Percival Everett which is also on the 2022 shortlist. So you could say they have one and a half books on the list this time around.
