Ron Charles, Hipppest Book Reviewer Ever

Ron Charles, from The Washington Post, is one of my favorite book reviewers. Recently he's started doing video clips, which are pretty entertaining. In this one he talks (eventually) about the five finalists for this year's Man Booker Prize for Fiction -- except he gets the title wrong for one of them. The nominated title by Andrea Levy is The Long Song, not Small Island. Although Small Island is a great book -- one I enjoyed very much -- and the winner of the Orange Prize for Fiction, the Orange Prize for Fiction Best of the Best, the Whitbread Novel Award and Best Book Award, and the Commonwealth Writer’s Prize.
