Elsewhere in the market the action continues and the Crikey Man Booker Prize Election Indicator (the six judges will meet next week to vote on the winner) has McCarthy as a 38% chance of winning. Australian author Peter Carey, one of only two authors to have won the prize twice, in 1988 for Oscar and Lucinda and in 2001 for True History of the Kelly Gang, is second pick with an 18% probability of becoming the only author to have won three times.
