Yesterday the Man Booker Judges announced the Prize's shortlist. (Check out the press release!)
I am happy to report that Kiran Desai's The Inheritance of Loss, the only longlist book that I've managed to read this year, did make it to the shortlist.
I'll just share with you the first line of this lovely book:
"All day, the colors had been those of dusk, mist moving like a water creature across the great flanks of mountains possessed of ocean shadows and depths."
