Andrea Levy

This year's Booker Prize winner will be announced October 12th. Six novels are on the short list, including Andrea Levy's third novel, The Long Song, set among slaves in 19th century Jamaica.

Andrea Levy's second novel, Small Island, told stories of Jamaican immigrants in the 1940s trying to find some kind of life in England. It won many prizes and I hope her new book will also win many prizes.
