  1. 我看好The Stranger’s Child入围短名单

  2. 入围短名单里应该没什么疑问,但不大可能获奖,文学奖还是比较喜欢新血液。

  3. 提不提拔新人还得看具体的评委,反正我是挺不喜欢特意提拔新人的这几年。The Stranger’s Child势头很猛,我支持它,呵呵

  4. 作品本身的质量始终是评奖的根本,但文学不是体育竞赛,有明确的第一第二第三,所谓的提拔新人也并非一定是初登文坛的新作家,而是希望借助文学奖的影响让一些有才华但被忽略的作家多得到些关注。像The Stranger’s Child这样的名家名作,多一个布克奖,无非是锦上添花。当然也要看入围作品的整体水平,如果高出其他对手很多,获奖亦是情理中。
