Booker Yawns

I see the 2008 Booker shortlist is out. My only interest in the Booker is that every single year, without having read any of the titles, I correctly predict which one will win and then wish I'd nipped down to the bookie's. Of this year's offerings, the two I would actually like to read are The Clothes on Their Backs and The Northern Clemency so I should cross those two off your list of potential winners right now.

So who will win? Tell meeeee! Or are you going to try your luck at the bookie's this time?

Would it be Steve Toltz perhaps? Someone who likes those very American, epic, over-the-top books that I hate (yes, John Irving, I mean you) was raving about him in my TV guide. (NB I know Toltz is an Australian.)
I haven't picked yet!

I've never read any John Irving. Should I be proud of this?
