Miles Franklin Award Discussion

As mentioned a couple of days back, the longlist for the 2007 Miles Franklin Award will be released on March 15th, and, as is my annual practice, I've put together a list of novels that might appear. Remember that 54 novels were submitted for the 2006 Award, with 12 making the longlist and five the shortlist.

Longlist possibilities:

Shadowboxing by Tony Birch
The Resurrectionist by James Bradley
Theft: A Love Story by Peter Carey
Silent Parts by John Charalambous
Safety by Tegan Bennett Daylight
The Pilo Family Circus by William Elliott
The Unknown Terrorist by Richard Flanagan
Diamond Dove by Adrian Hyland
Dreams of Speaking by Gail Jones
The Memory of Tides by Angelo Loukakis
Underground by Andrew McGahan
Cricket Kings by William McInnes
Tuvalu by Andrew O'Connor
Careless by Deborah Robertson
Swallow the Air by Tara June Winch
Carpentaria by Alexis Wright

There must be more than that?
