2009 longlist:
The Children's Book by AS Byatt -- shortlist
Summertime by JM Coetzee -- shortlist
The Quickening Maze by Adam Foulds -- shortlist
How to paint a dead Man by Sarah Hall
The Wilderness by Samantha Harvey
Me Cheeta by James Lever
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel -- Winner!
The Glass Room by Simon Mawer -- shortlist
Not Untrue & Not Unkind by Ed O'Loughlin
Heliopolis by James Scudamore
Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín
Love and Summer by William Trevor
The Little Stranger Sarah Waters -- shortlist

As expected, this year's big four – Hilary Mantel, AS Byatt, Sarah Waters and Colm Tóibín – all feature, alongside Coetzee, who's a Booker perennial – one of only two authors ever to have won the prize twice. The old hands are balanced by three first-timers, Samantha Harvey, James Lever and Ed O'Loughlin. In fact the list feels fairly balanced altogether, in terms of range of subject, and the fact that there are several strong contenders. Sorry not to see Tobias Hill's The Hidden up there, which I loved; out of the books on the list that I've read, my money's on Wolf Hall – this year could be Mantel's moment, I think (listen to her reading from Wolf Hall, and talking to Claire Armitstead about it).

The shortlist for the 2005 Man Booker Prize, which honors the best novel of the year from Britain, Ireland and the Commonwealth, consists of the following six titles:

* On Beauty by Zadie Smith
* Arthur and George by Julian Barnes
* The Sea by John Banville -- WINNER!
* A Long Long Way by Sebastian Barry
* Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
* The Accidental by Ali Smith

1970 Issues accessed 2/2/10 from Shelf Awareness. The Guardian reported that the new award "aims to commemorate the works that 'fell through the net' in 1970 after changes to the Booker rules. In 1971, two years after the prize was first given, it ceased to be awarded retrospectively and became, as it is now, a prize for the best novel in the year of publication. The date on which the award was given was also moved from April to November, creating a gap when a wealth of 1970 fiction could not be eligible." The shortlist will be announced in March and the winner named in May.

The shortlist for the Lost Man Booker Prize, honoring works published in 1970 that were not eligible for consideration for the Booker Prize at the time (Shelf Awareness, February 2, 2010):

The Birds on the Trees by Nina Bawden
Troubles by J.G. Farrell -- Winner!
The Bay of Noon by Shirley Hazzard
Fire from Heaven by Mary Renault
The Driver's Seat by Muriel Spark
The Vivisector by Patrick White
Although a panel of judges chose the shortlist, the winner will be determined by a public vote on the Man Booker Prize website. The winner will be announced May 19.
