Vijaydan Detha and Eduardo Mendoza Garriga, huh? Anyone familiar with them? Hanan Al-Shaykh is a new name for me too, I think...
My turn with Eduardo Mendoza (don't know why the hell they keep adding the Garriga at betting lists, it never shows at the cover of his books).
He is a Spanish author that mostly writes detective thrillers/novel noir kind of books. He is good at what he does, but he is far away from being a true contender for this prize.

This two lists basically dropped the names from Ladbrokes when the prize was announced last year, so that is why you see so many repeated names. At least they deleted Mo Yan although not Chinua Achebe. Real action will come up when Ladbrokes publishes their list, probably late August.
