.. and here are the finalists:

As the hyperlinks above show, I’ve read two of the three finalists.  Unlike the rest of the planet I wasn’t that keen on Elizabeth is Missing (though I acknowledge that Healey’s take on a woman suffering from dementia is superb).  However, I adored A Song for Issy Bradley and without having read the Fuller I’d be glad to see Bray walk away with the Prize.

I am planning on reading Our Endless Numbered Days, sandwiched somewhere between my Man Booker reading and the longlist announcement for the National Book Award.

Congratulations to the finalists.
