Video review of the Man Booker shortlist

Standard

To my annoyance, I can’t get this to go in as embedded video so you’ll have to click on this link to this humorous video review of the Man Booker shortlist by Ron Charles in the Washington Post. See if you can spot his mistake*.

 Unfortunately you will have to endure 15 seconds or so of advertising before the video starts and there is some commentary on reading before getting down to the gritty business of the Man Booker shortlist and some practical information on impressing people with your literary choices.

Enjoy!

*Answer: It’s Andrea Levy’s The Long Song which has been shortlisted, not Small Island which is a 2004 book – it did win the Whitbread and Orange prizes though and I can highly recommend it.
