Anything Is Possible – Elizabeth Strout (Viking)
Conversations With Friends – Sally Rooney (Faber)
Exit West – Mohsin Hamid (Hamish Hamilton)
Ghosts of the Tsunami – Richard Lloyd Parry (Jonathan Cape)

De jury over de keuze:

The eight books we’ve finally chosen are very different from one another, and they’re all wonderful. Overall, the experience has left us optimistic about the current good health and fine spirit of books in the English-writing and English-reading world.

De prijs, waaraan een bedrag van £20,000 is verbonden, is bedoeld voor ‘all works of literature [behalve jeugdliteratuur] written in English and published in the UK.’ De bekendmaking van de winnaar volgt in mei.
