The jury Medici unveiled the list of novels selected for their prize which will be handed out on 8 November. Santiago H. Amigorena ( The Ghetto Inside , ed POL) is a good start for the grand slam, since he already appears on the list of the Renaudot and the Goncourt (he has just won also the prix des Libraires de Nancy).

The editions of the Threshold, absent from the list Goncourt, have three novels in the selection Medici. Grasset has two, as well as POL and Flammarion. Gallimard, three. Actes Sud and Albin Michel are not represented.

note that the big publishers are largely present on this list, so that the Goncourt is the best of the small and medium publishers. Among the first novels include the Victor Jestin, The Heat (ed Flammarion) which we hear so much and which has also attracted the eye of the jury Renaudot.
