October Media Review

In a rash moment, live in September’s podcast, Darren declared that for October’s Media Review the podcast team would commit to reading the winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize.

The nominees for 2013 were:

We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo (Chatto & Windus)
The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton (Granta)
Harvest by Jim Crace (Picador)
The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri (Bloomsbury)
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki (Canongate)
The Testament of Mary by Colm Tóibín (Penguin)

And the winner was … The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton

Hey Darren, it’s only 832 pages! The winning book was announced on 15 Oct – we are recording the podcast on 24 Oct – no problem for our intrepid team?
