The Booker Prize 2023 Has Announced Its Shortlist

The shortlist of the Booker Prize 2023 has been announced, naming six titles, which will compete for the world’s most significant award for the best sustained work of fiction written in English and published in the UK or Ireland.

The titles shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2023 are:

None of the six authors has previously been shortlisted for the prize. There are two debuts on the shortlist; there is one British, one Canadian, two Irish and two American authors. Although full of hope, humour and humanity, the books address many of 2023’s most pressing concerns: climate change, immigration, financial hardship, the persecution of minorities, political extremism and the erosion of personal freedoms. They feature characters in search of peace and belonging or lamenting lost loves. There are books that are grounded in modern reality, that shed light on shameful episodes in history and which imagine a terrifying future.

The winner of the Booker Prize 2023 will be announced at an event at Old Billingsgate, London, on November 26, 2023.
