    Man Booker Prize Eligible 2014
    Quote:This is a list of novels that may be considered for the Man Booker Prize in 2014.

    Eligible novels are those published between Oct 2013 - Sep 2014, with new rule changes broadening the countries of origin from the Commonwealth (inc. Ireland & Zimbabwe) to include all novels written originally in English and published in the UK. The most significant implication will be the inclusion of American authors, though their published work in Britain must be by "an established imprint." The number of submissions allowed per publishing house will now depend on the number of their novels which have been shortlisted for the prize in recent years.

    Longlist = July 2014
    Shortlist = Sep 2014
    Winner = Oct 14, 2014

    Chair = AC Grayling

    PS: The book "Burnt Shadows" by Kamila Shamsie has good recommendations. vide: Goodreads
