With the Booker Prize 2023 shortlist just around the corner, we took a spin on the quiz helpfully laid out on the official website, and were recommended a pair of books to explore from the longlist: Jonathan Escoffery's If I Survive You, a novel told through short vignettes, exploring a young man's questions and struggles through familial tensions and questions of identity, and Chetna Maroo's Western Lane, a quiet novel about how an 11 year old girl copes with grief through the punishing rhythms of squash. We review both these books, before getting into the larger value of book quizzes in Footnotes.
