Are you a podcast listener? Don't miss The Man Booker Prize podcast which is a exciting new audio series which takes as its focus the prize’s tagline, Fiction at its Finest, and looks at the very best from the world of books. Throughout seven podcasts, Joe Haddow, Producer of the Radio 2 BBC Book Club, will offer listeners a behind-the-scenes look at the prize.
The latest episode is out this Friday (7th August) and will feature judges Michael Wood and Sam Leith talking about selecting the longlist, authors Paul Ewen (aka Francis Plug) and Sarah Waters, and Chris White from the Waterstones Book Club. If you missed the episode one, featuring Viv Groskop, Richard Flanagan’s stunned reaction to winning in 2014 and an inside look at the publication of Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman, catch up now on iTunes and SoundCloud.
With guest recommendations from the magnificent backlist to as-it-happens interviews at key news announcements, this is your ultimate Man Booker guide in the run up to the big day on 13 October, when the 2015 winner will be revealed.
