List of the Day: Man Booker Prize/James Tait Black Memorial Prize Crossovers

Only three books have won both the Man Booker Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize:

Last Orders by Graham Swift in 1996;

Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie in 1981; and

G by John Berger in 1972.

This may seem like no more than the answer to a random literary trivia question, but it is very important to those Anglophile readers participating in the Battle of the Prizes, British Version.

Wait! Did you post the challenge & I missed it?!

Not yet! I am posting it tomorrow, but needed this post to be "live" so I could make a link in the main post. So I "pre-dated" this one.

Maybe there is another way to do it, but it's the only way I could think of.

So check back because the real challenge post will be up on Jan. 28. I am so excited that you are going to participate!!
