This year, according to the Times Online:

Julian Barnes was confirmed as the favourite to win the Man Booker literary prize today after his main heavyweight rivals were left off the shortlist.

In my early days at university back in the '90s, I enjoyed reading Julian Barnes. In fact, A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters was my favourite retreat.
