Man Booker and Costa-winner Hilary Mantel could be in line for another prize for Bring Up The Bodies (Fourth Estate), after scoring a place on the Independent Bookseller Award shortlists, with fellow nominees David Walliams and Rachel Joyce thanking booksellers for their support.

Joyce’s The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry (Black Swan) is included on the adult shortlist alongside HhHH by Laurent Binet (Vintage); A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki (Canongate); Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo (Portobello); and The Etymologicon by Mark Forsyth (Icon Books).

Last year’s Orange Prize-winner The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (Bloomsbury) has also made the shortlist, along with three books from Faber—Capital by John Lanchester, Flight Behaviour by Barbara Kingsolver and Walking Home by Simon Armitage.
