From Scott to Beatty, test your knowledge of half a century of prize Pauls with these 12 questions 

For the first time since 2015, this year’s Booker Prize shortlist features more men than women. And for the first time ever, three writers called Paul are shortlisted, and one of them may become the third Paul to win the prize. But they are far from the only distinguished Pauls to be part of the Booker fraternity. Take our quiz to find out more about Murray, Harding, Lynch and all the others – and to put your knowledge to the test.
