Due to a soaring popularity of book clubs across the country, the organisers this year decided to pluck six remarkable groups from relative obscurity to join their distinguished panel.
For the first time in the award’s 40-year history, the fierce bank of academics, playwrights and actors will be joined by ordinary members of the public with a love for literature.
And now, these reading groups have their own blog space on the Man Booker website to talk about the shortlisted books. Night Watch and Mother's Milk have been discussed a bit already. Go take a look.
