Man Booker Prize 2018 Readers' Guides

Large mbp longlist fullstack

The Man Booker Prize longlist or ‘Man Booker Dozen’ was announced on 24 July, featuring the 13 books in competition for the £50,000 prize. Chosen by a panel of five judges, the Prize is the leading literary award in the English speaking world, and has brought recognition, reward and readership to outstanding fiction for 50 years.

We worked with the Prize to create readers’ guides for each of the longlisted books. Featuring information about the book itself and the author, the guides provide discussion points and recommended themed reading, as well as useful links for when your group discusses the books.

These guides provide a range of ideas that will help your reading group get the most out of the the longlisted books.

Get involved

We have an exclusive opportunity for six reading groups to shadow the prize shortlist, reading and reviewing one of the books before the judges choose a winner. If you would like to apply, please visit our Noticeboard by 10 September.

Listen to the brilliant Man Booker Prize podcast audio series on Soundcloud with Joe Haddow from Radio 2.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
