Who decides these things?

My personal favorite, The Gift of Rain, did not make the Booker shortlist.

I've tossed The Gathering back into the pile due to the library. Whiny and depressing. Mr. Pip drove me back into the arms of Anna Karenina. And At Chesil Beach was just okay.

My vote goes to The Reluctant Fundamentalist and the rest can go to pot.

I don't know whether you visit the Man Booker website very often, but they sure do post a lot of stories about oddsmakers and the most recent betting line. I sure hope the judging is on the up-and-up.

Otherwise, I think McEwan can beat the spread. I'll take him and give up the points.

You can bet on anything ("Guys and Dolls," anyone?).

I think I'm going to submit my name for judge next year. Cocktails and gambling? It's Vegas, baby.
