Indies tip Mozley and Saunders for Booker

Indies tip Mozley and Saunders for Booker

Indie booksellers are divided on who they think will take home the Man Booker Prize today (17th), with a few backing fellow bookseller Fiona Mozley for her debut Elmet (JM Originals), while others have hinted they are expecting Ali Smith or George Saunders to claim the prize.

In contention for the £50,000 gong are Mohsin Hamid for Exit West (Hamish Hamilton), Smith for Autumn (Hamish Hamilton), 4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster (Faber & Faber), Mozley’s Elmet (JM Originals), Saunders' Lincoln in the Bardo (Bloomsbury) and Emily Fridlund for History of Wolves (Weidenfeld & Nicolson).
