Eight authors of first novels have been shortlisted for the Booker Prize, the organizers of the prestigious British literary prize announced on Tuesday. They will compete with renowned feathers like Hilary Mantel and Tsitsi Dangarembga.

British novelist Hilary Mantel has twice won this prestigious literary prize created in 1969, the British equivalent of Goncourt, to which authors of all nationalities can compete as long as they write in English. It was Hilary Mantel’s third book on Thomas Cromwell, minister to King Henry VIII of England, which caught the attention of the five jurors. His bestsellers were adapted for television in the award-winning series “Wolf Hall”.
