Not the Booker Prize 2017

Don't Look For Me is on the (extremely long) longlist for the Guardian's Not the Booker Prize 2017. If you'd like to make me very happy by casting a vote for me, here's how:


All you have to do is cast your vote in the comments below the article.

You need to choose two books from the longlist, from two different publishers, and accompany those choices with a short review of at least one of your chosen books. It would also be very helpful if you could include the word “vote”.

Here is a template for submitting your vote for the Not the Booker shortlist. Using this template will ensure your vote is properly structured and won't be discarded!

[yourusername] - Vote # 1 - [Book title only]*
[yourusername] - Vote # 2 - [Book title only]*

[A review of one of the two books. We're looking for something like 100 words, give or take, but we're very generous regarding the word count. Only one review is required, but we'd love to hear your thoughts on the second book too.]

[Anything else you want to tell us, including a review of your second book. We'll read it all, I promise.]

The review should be something above 100 words long, although as our happy and glorious terms and conditions state, we don’t promise a perfect count. Please just make it look like you care.
It’s that easy. So let’s get voting. You’ve got just over a week. The deadline is 23.59 BST on Monday 7 August 2017.


Always nice to be on a list, and I believe this is my first mention in the Guardian, which is nice.

If you're looking for another choice for your second vote, June Taylor's Losing Juliet, Jay Stringer's How to Kill Friends and Implicate People and Derek Farrell's Death of a Devil are also very good shouts, but there's loads of good stuff on this list, which is kind of the point, I suppose.
