Man Booker Prize Shortlist 2010

Well, the jury has spent the past two months whittling down their longlist and here's what they've decided is shortlist worthy this year:

Parrot and Olivier in America by Peter Carey (Faber and Faber)
C by Tom McCarthy (Random House - Jonathan Cape)
In a Strange Room by Damon Galgut (Grove Atlantic - Atlantic Books)
The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobsen (Bloomsbury)
The Long Song by Andrea Levy (Headline Publishing Group - Headline Review)
Room by Emma Donoghue (Pan MacMillan - Picador)

Emma Donoghue is the only Canadian remaining on the list (February by Lisa Moore was on the longlist). The winner (to be announced Oct. 12) receives $50,000, which is pretty fantastic.
