    A very good shortlist overall. Sally Rooney’s omission is a surprise but plenty to get behind.

    Folks here should know that you’ve reviewed two of these for the site, Lee! I meant to comment first to get them linked :-) .

    Here are Lee’s reviews for:
    Everything Under

    I really hope The Mars Room wins – that was my favourite on the longlist and I was thrilled to see it make the cut. Bit of a pre-emptive gripe over on the Goodreads message board about the prospect of another US male winning the award to make it three-in-a-row but surely nobody would quibble at Kushner…
