The awards, I know, are not US awards, but we all read books from all over the world in this global society. So it is always interesting to me to see who wins. I read about the impending announcement on a Reuters site.

Thanks, Sue. I'm looking forward to your posting them. I've had some great finds among the Bookers. In any case, the picks are an interesting topic.
And while we're on the subject: The Shamus awards have just been announced. Since I was among those judging this time, I thought I'd mention it.
Good for you!
I see an Indian writer won, Aravind Adiga, for THE WHITE TIGER. Sounds good to me. I've read a number of very strong novels by Asian authors.
Thank you for the update. I have so many books on my TBR shelf now, but I will look into White Tiger.

I am reading a Norwegian novel now, Karin Fossum's Don't Look Back (translated by Felicity David), and I just discovered (Where have I been?) James Lee Burke's daughter, Alafair Burke, who has written several crime novels. Oviously her style has been positively influenced by her father.
I see that the Booker choice is controversial.
Karin Fossum is good. Very atmospheric.
