Tom McCarthy's Remainder, a bit of a cult hit in Canada and the U.S outlasts Ian McEwan't On Chesil Beach and Marianne Wiggins The Shadow Catcher bests Brock Clarke's much reviewed first novel Arsonist's Guide to Writers Homes in New England.
Thus concludes Round One.
Left standing are two heavyweights in Junot Diaz and Denis Johnson and a couple surprising upstarts in Tom McCarthy and Vendela Vida.
Round Two commences tomorrow.
