The James Tait Black Memorial Prize

I tipped Mohsin Hamid, for the 2007 Man Booker Prize with his novel The Reluctant Fundamentalist, unfortunatley he didn’t win. However he has been shortlisted for the fiction category of the James Tait Black Memorial Prizes. The James Tait Black Memorial Prize although not as prestigious as the Booker, does have a good pedigree. Previous winners include: DH Lawrence, Graham Greene and Salman Rushdie. The winner will be announced at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in August 2008.
