Mukherjee’s novel shortlisted for Booker Prize

 

Kolkata-born British author Neel Mukherjee’s latest novel The Lives of Others, set in troubled Bengal of the 1960s and centred  around a dysfunctional family, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Booker Prize 2014, in its debut as a global literary award.

Mr. Mukherjee, who studied at Oxford and Cambridge, was also the only Indian-origin author to be long listed earlier this year, the first time the prestigious literary award opened up for anyone writing in English regardless of nationality.
