Prophet Song shortlisted for the Booker Prize

Prophet Song, published to wide acclaim in August 2023, has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize.

In a citation, the Booker jury said: "Paul Lynch’s harrowing and dystopian Prophet Song vividly renders a mother’s determination to protect her family as Ireland’s liberal democracy slides inexorably and terrifyingly into totalitarianism. Readers will find it timely and unforgettable. It’s a remarkable accomplishment for a novelist to capture the social and political anxieties of our moment so compellingly".

The winner of the Booker Prize will be announced on 26 November.
