Internationalization of Man Booker Prize at the same time, the six-novel shortlist finalists also shows a globalized world. Sahota in the novel the flight of that year (The Year of the Runaway) described three from India young man with an India origin United Kingdom woman story occurred in Sheffield. Each of these immigrants carries a past secret, tries to start a new life in a foreign country. Tom McCarty of the Sardinia (Satin Island) is one of ambition: anthropologist u were asked to write a summary research report of the contemporary world, as he gradually on the screen on oil spills, the traffic jams, zombie procession of images of Africa, he tries to find a way to concatenate all the hidden logic.

Yanagihara cherry, American writer of the little life is recognized as an award-winning hit, occupying United Kingdom bookmaker charts, ultimately lost to James "polyphonic aesthetics and the aesthetics of violence." Wood recalled, some people told him that they wanted to donate the award-winning novel the mother read James ' book may be a bit too difficult, however. Man Booker Prize has always been closely related to publishing performance, last year's winner lichade·fulanagen's works of the road leading to the North in the United Kingdom sold 300,000 copies, and sold almost 800,000 copies worldwide.
