We have delved into the Booker Library with our buckets and spades to bring you a bumper quiz on the theme of summer holidays. Each of the five rounds has a theme, from ‘School’s Out’ to ‘Aquatic Activities’, and all the authors featured – although not necessarily all the books – have been shortlisted for and/or won the Booker Prize.

The title of the quiz, ‘Summertime’, is taken from the name of a 2009 novel by a two-time winner of the Booker Prize. Can you name the author? The answer is at the very bottom of the quiz.



Answer to the question at the top of the page: The author of the 2009 novel, Summertime, is J.M. Coetzee.
