The Shortlist has just been announced:

Kiran Desai : The Inheritance of Loss - Hamish Hamilton
Kate Grenville : The Secret River - Canongate
M.J. Hyland : Carry Me Down - Canongate
Hisham Matar : In the Country of Men - Viking
Edward St Aubyn : Mother's Milk - Picador
Sarah Waters : The Night Watch - Virago

Last year's chair characterized the list as "brave."

I haven't followed much of the build-up (did not see much to be honest), but I know that Claire Messud's entry had received a fair bit of hype on this side of the Atlantic, and that David Mitchell's Black Swan Green had been bookmaker's favorite.
