Dystopia & Disruption

Man Booker Longlist announced today. Dystopia and Disruption. Signs of the times to be sure. But. I want to escape all that.

It’s clearly a good year for Canada’s Michael Ondaatje. His 1992 The English Patient won the Golden prize for the best work of fiction in the past five decades. Warlight made this year’s list. I didn’t love it as much as one of my all time faves, The Cat’s Table.

Not sure about the others on the list. In general, not the most upbeat subject matter. So.
