- A Case of Exploding Mangoes by Mohammad Hanif (Pakistan): also longlisted for the Booker Prize
- A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz (Australia): also shortlisted for the Booker Prize
- God's Own Country by Ross Raisin (UK)
- The Rest is Noise by Alex Ross (USA): non-fiction
- Stalin's Children by Owen Matthews (UK): non-fiction
My bet is on one of the first two titles, even though I haven't read them yet (They are never available at the library, guess why?).
