The Man Booker Prize longlist has been announced and it’s a day I really look forward to.  Now to get reading (or at least seriously considering reading) some of these finalists.  Their list always highlights something I’ve missed.  Hooray for the Man Booker Prize!

This year’s longlist:

  • The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt
  • Summertime by J. M. Coetzee
  • The Quickening Maze by Adam Foulds
  • How to Paint a Dead Man by Sarah Hall
  • The Wilderness by Samantha Harvey
  • Me Cheeta by James Lever
  • Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
  • The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
  • Not Untrue & Not Unkind by Ed O’Loughlin
  • Heliopolis by James Scudamore
  • Brooklyn by Colm Toibin
  • Love and Summer by William Trevor
  • The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters

The shortlist will be unveiled September 8, and the winner named October 6 at a dinner at London’s Guildhall.
