BOOKER MAK­ERS

The Jewish Chronicle - - Arts&entertainment -

While au­thors Hi­lary Man­tel, JM Coet­zee and Sarah Wa­ters seem to be at­tract­ing the most bet­ting in­ter­est in the Man Booker short list, the two “Jewish in­ter­est” books — Si­mon Mawer’s The Glass Room (Jewish con­tent) and Adam Foulds’s The Quick­en­ing Maze (Jewish au­thor) — are, at 6/1 and 10/1 re­spec­tively, the long-shots among the six ti­tles, re­veals Nick Wein­berg of Lad­brokes. For those who fancy a flut­ter and want to show some sol­i­dar­ity, do re­mem­ber that the prize fre­quently goes to an out­sider.
