The Year of the Runaways Sunjeev Sahota Satin Island Tom McCarthy The Fishermen: A Novel Chigozie Obioma A Spool of Blue Thread Anne Tyler A Little Life Hanya Yanagihara A Brief History of Seven Killings Marlon James Here is the shortlist. Anyone read any of them? Any thoughts? I've made it my plan to try and read them all before the result. Read 'Satin Island', which was odd and not particularly enjoyable. Having a better time with 'A Spool of Blue Thread' thus far at least.
