2008 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award [Updated]

A couple of weeks back I posted about the Australian novels that had been included on the longlist of works for the 2008 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. At that time I identified 6 novels - out of the 137 nominated - as Australian. Over the weekend, the Undercover blog, associated with "The Sydney Morning Herald", corrected that entry, and increased the number to 9.

Here is the final Australian list of novels:
Theft: A Love Story by Peter Carey
Tuvalu by Andrew O'Connor *
The Unknown Terrorist by Richard Flanagan
The Sweet and Simple Kind by Yasmine Gooneratne *
Dreams of Speaking by Gail Jones
The Travel Writer by Simone Lazaroo *
Underground by Andrew McGahan
Careless by Deborah Robertson
Carpentaria by Alexis Wright

The ones I missed previously are marked with a *.

[Further update: as has been pointed out in the comments on this posting, the original notification of this update came from Susan Wyndham's Undercover blog, rather than the more general "Entertainment" blog.]
