Booker Long List

And the race is on:

Aravind Adiga's The White Tiger is one of the best books I've read in a while (review coming soon), and Salmon Rushdie's Enchantress of Florence is one of the worst. I say let Rushdie continue to rest on his laurels about Midnight's Children and pass the coveted prize to someone else. Child 44 and Netherland are supposed to be AMAZING, so I will definitely read those. Hopefully, I can read all of them before October.

John Berger From A to X
