The Booker goes to Anne Enright, continuing an emerging tradition of the favourite horse breaking a leg around the final turn. It's in paperback, which helps the friendly neighbourhood bookseller; but I've not gotten to the book yet.
Some good stuff on the GG's, particularly for poetry. Local Renaissance Man Brian Henderson is up for the prize as well as one of my faves, Don Domanski.
Still pulling for Brian. A taste of his book can be found here and a point of reference from one of my favourite presses as well.
The fiction list is a bit more conservative, although it's nice to see Barbara Gowdy get there.
Specs are here.
