American author George Saunders is favored to win the prestigious Man Booker Prize for fiction, according to British bookmakers, with his novel of the afterlife, "Lincoln in the Bardo". Bookmakers Ladbrokes and William Hill made Saunders the front-runner among six finalists announced Wednesday for the 50,000-pound ($66,000) prize. The other finalists are British-Pakistani writer Mohsin Hamid's migration story "Exit West," Scottish novelist Ali Smith's Brexit-themed "Autumn" and "Elmet," Mozley's novel about a fiercely independent family under threat.Thirty percent of the 144 books submitted by publishers for consideration were American, a figure slightly down from last year.
