2008 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award

The extremely long longlist of novels nominated for the 2008 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award has been announced. The Australian nominees that I've noticed are as follows:

Theft: A Love Story by Peter Carey
The Unknown Terrorist by Richard Flanagan
Dreams of Speaking by Gail Jones
Underground by Andrew McGahan
Careless by Deborah Robertson
Carpentaria by Alexis Wright

There are 137 novels nominated so it is possible that I missed some. Dublin City Council will announce the shortlist on 2nd April 2008 and the winning novel will be announced by the Lord Mayor on 12th June 2008. The prize is worth 100,000 Euros.
