Eclectic and striving never to follow paths into ruts, the OF Blog focuses on essays, reviews, interviews, and other odds and ends that might be of interest to fans of both literary and speculative fiction. Now with a cute owl for your enjoyment.
Although I had posted the longlist some time ago, I forgot to check back for the shortlist announcement until I happened to see it discussed on Eve's Alexandria. I've read half of the six finalists and based on those three, I think this might be a very solid, perhaps slightly predictable, group. Bolded titles are the ones I've already read:
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - Americanah
Hannah Kent - Burial Rites Jhumpa Lahiri - The Lowland
Audrey Magee - The Undertaking
Eimear McBride - A Girl Is A Half-Formed Thing Donna Tartt - The Goldfinch
