The White Tiger by Aravind AdigaThere are three works of fiction on the list. Ardiga's novel was the winner of this year's Booker prize, of course, and you may remember that Ross Raisin has been nominated for the Guardian First Book Award.
The Broken Word by Adam Foulds
The Secret Life of Words by Henry Hitchings
The Bloody White Baron by James Palmer
God’s Own Country by Ross Raisin
Selling Your Father’s Bones by Brian Schofield
Fould's The Broken Word sounds fascinating - it is a verse novella (and how often do you get those?) set in Kenya at the time of the Mau Mau uprising, and following it's protagonist, Tom, as he returns to the family farm in between leaving public school and going up to Cambridge.
You can read about all the books here on the British Council's Animating Literature website, and there is information about all the authors here. The winner will be announced on Monday 24 November.
