Man Booker Longlist Preview

July 29, 2015

The Man Booker Prize has announced its longlist and I thought I’d share the link since we do have the majority of these and not just the Americans.  It seems many of the commonwealth writers have already been published in the US, which is great.  The only exceptions I’ve noted are The Year of the Runaways by Sunjeev Sahota (UK), Sleeping on Jupiter by Anuradha Roy (India), and The Chimes by Anna Smaill (New Zealand), but while they’re not available from US publisher yet, that will surely change if they win and The Year of the Runaways is coming out here next March.  I’m adding copies of Laila Lalami’s The Moor’s Account as well.  [Note: here’s some interesting follow-up commentary from the Guardian about this year’s list and diversity.]

 

A spool of blue thread  The green road  A brief history of seven killings  Did You Ever Have a Family  A little life : a novel   Satin Island : a novelThe fishermen : a novel The Moor's account : a novel The illuminations
