Lowest prices for the Booker longlist

The longlist for the Booker Prize has been announced and Jhumpa Lahiri's The Lowland is tipped to be one of the frontrunners. Find out where her book and the others are cheapest.

Only a few former winners/nominees for the prize had books eligible for the Man Booker this year, so the list comprises many little-known authors (just two of them have received nominations before). Of the first-time shortlistees, however, one name will surely stand out. Indian-American author Jhumpa Lahiri has received her first nomination for the prize for The Lowland, which only releases this September (you can pre-order it, though).

To help you get these books at the best price, we’ve checked tags at Landmark, Homeshop18, Crossword, Flipkart, Amazon and Infibeam (some of the books are yet to be available in more than one store, but we’ll keep updating this list as they arrive).

This list was last updated on July 24, 2013.

Do note that in case of a big price difference, it’s likely that the more expensive listing is for a hardcover. Our aim has been to give you the cheapest price available.
