Booker Prize Prediction: Esi Edugyan’s Half-Blood Blues

Despite what the puppy says, when it comes to who will win the 2011 Man Booker Prize, here at AbeBooks headquarters we’re rooting for local author Esi Edugyan, whose nominated Half Blood Blues is her second novel and a heck of a good read.

Longlisted for the Giller Prize, shortlisted for the Booker Prize, and with a new daughter born just over a month ago, Edugyan’s life must be a whirlwind of everything under the sun (except sleep) these days. Still, we managed to catch up with her to talk about her book and more.

Read our interview with Esi Edugyan, check out our review of Half Blood Blues, and if you haven’t had a chance to read it- it’s highly recommended.
