Who’s it going to be: Deborah Levy, Hilary Mantel, Alison Moore, Will Self, Tan Twan Eng or Jeet Thayil? The announcement will be made tomorrow at a dinner at the Guildhall, televised by the BBC. Each of the six will receive £2,500 and a specially commissioned handbound edition of their book, with a further £50,000 for the winner. And of course there’s the added value of the usual surge in sales of their book: Julian Barnes’ The Sense of An Ending, which won the 2011 prize, has now sold over 300,000 in the UK in print copies alone.
