The Booker prize

The booker prize er en litteraturpris som utdeles hvert eneste år for den beste originale roman skrevet på engelsk. I 2013 ble også amerikanerne invitert til Bookerprisen,og i år ble de første amerikanerne nominert, tidligere var det kun forfattere fra Samveldet av nasjoner,Irland eller Zimbabwe.

De som står med uthevet skrift har jeg lest, og det er ikke så mange enda men det er noe jeg skal jobbe med fremover.
