The finalists for the U.K.’s prestigious Man Booker Prize this year include new novels by Nobel winner J.M. Coetzee, A.S. Byatt, and…Me Cheeta, a ”memoir” by the chimpanzee star of 1930s Tarzan movies (published in the U.S. in March). British writer James Lever is actually the uncredited author of the book, a satire of golden-age Hollywood that boasts cameos by Esther Williams and Errol Flynn. But if Me Cheeta actually wins, can it still be called the Man Booker Prize?
