Srinagar: Arundhati Roy, who won the prize in 1997 for “The God of Small Things,” is in the running again with her long-awaited second novel, “The Ministry of Utmost Happiness.” The 13 books announced Thursday were chosen from 144 novels submitted by publishers, reports said.
Founded in 1969 and originally open only to writers from Britain, Ireland and the Commonwealth, the Booker expanded in 2014 to include all English-language authors. Its first American winner was Paul Beatty’s “The Sellout” in 2016.
The six finalists will be named September 13, and the winner of the 50,000-pound ($65,000) prize will be announced on October 17.
